  Two cultivars of Panicum maximum (cultivars T58 and Ntchisi) were evaluated to determine the influence of soil type(texture and class) on their mineral and feeding values. The grasses were planted at two different locations on the farm site. Results shows that those planted on the sandy loam soil performed best. The grasses were not able to withstand the presence of clay at all. The number of tillers produced in the sandy clay soil was lower (4,250 kg ha 1) than the one in the sandy loam soil (5,826.5 kg ha 1). The presence of clay influenced the minerals present and especially made most other minerals not really available to the plant. The soil types affected the grass feeding value. The pH of the soil had no influence on the dry matter productivity of these grasses, but determined the level of acidity or basicity of the soil and had a direct link to the type and available minerals at any particular time.

  A feeding trial was conducted to assess the nutritional value of Gliricidia Leaf Meal (GLM) on performance, nutrient digestibility and economy of production of layer chickens. GLM was used partially to replace maize and soyabean at 0, 5, 10 and 15% in diets A(control), B, C and D, respectively. Performance characteristics interms of Hen day production, feed intake, body weight gain, feed efficiency and feed cost were monitored. Chemical analysis revealed that GLM contains 24.38 Crude Protein (CP), 1.75 Ether Extract (EE), 12.45 Crude Fibre (CF), 8.64 Ash and 45.36% Nitrogen Free Extractives (NFE). Only egg weight showed no significant difference (p>0.05) while Henday production, feed intake feed efficiency and body weight were significantly different (p<0.05) among dietary treatments. Feed cost (N/kg feed) was significantly different (p<0.05) across the diet. Nutrient utilization studies (dry mater, crude protein and ether extractives) were not significantly influenced (p>0.05) due to dietary treatments. It therefore appears that up to 15% of GLM can be incorporated into laying chicken ration without any adverse effect.
