Biochemical Characteristics of Lippia multifora (Verbenaceae) Leaves with Respect to Fertilizer Applied to the Soil

Yao-Kouame Albert and Kane Fako

Abstract:
This study is part of the general domestication of Lippia multiflora, a plant which may contribute to the diversification of African agriculture and traditional pharmacopeia. The study focuses on determining certain characteristics of leaves at different vegetative stages. Thus, analysis were performed on Lippia multiflora (Verbenaceae) leaves taken from plants a month and a half old (young leaves) and one year old (old leaves), cultivated on field plots with different amounts of fertilizer (urea). The results show that the amount of urea applied to the soil did not affect the analyzed elements; the measured values of which are 16.5% of humidity level for young leaves and 12% for old leaves. The result shows also that ash rate is 10% for young leaves and 14% for old leaves; when proteins represent 12.25% for young leaves and 8.75% for old leaves. We measured out the carbohydrate and obtain that there rate is 0.40% for young leaves and 0.60% for old leaves. As for reducing sugar it represent 0.013% for young leaves and 0.008% for old leaves.
