MetadataShow full item record
A one and a half months field experiment was done at the Kyebando-Nsooba in Kampala District, Uganda. The research evaluated the response of spinach to organic manure in different soil types. The experimental design used a completely randomized sample with 3 replicates. Five seeds of spinach were sown at a depth of 2 inches in each of the pots and left for 2week. Weeding and watering crop practices were done. The results were recorded starting on the 14th day where the parameters measured were length of terminal leaflets, width of terminal leaflets and shoot length at a 4 day’s interval. On the 38th, all the spinach leaves were harvested and weighed in grams. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) to compare the effects of the treatments on the spinach growth parameters was done. The spinach grown in loam soil and NPK produced the highest growth results as compared to the rest of the sp6inach samples.
