  An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of phosphorus application on the growth and fodder yield of Lablab (Lablab purpureus) at 13° 1'N, 5° 15'E. Treatments consisted of factorial combinations of three levels of phosphates fertilizer (0, 40 and 80 kg ha-1) in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching and Research Farm in 2005/2006 cropping season. Plant height, leaf length, leaf width, leaf number, stand count were evaluated in every two weeks for ten weeks to monitor crop growth rate under different sowing methods. Herbage yield was estimated at the end of the tenth week. The treatments consist of three levels of phosphates fertilizer. Results indicated that the levels of phosphorus application had no significant (p>0.05) effect on mean stand count at all sampling dates. The mean plant height, leaf length, leaf width and number of leaves were however significantly (p<0.05) affected by the phosphorus application. All the parameters observed, with the exception of the stand count, increased with the increasing levels of phosphorus application. Mean drymatter yield of 1208 kg ha-1 was obtained at 10 WAP. It was therefore concluded that phosphorus application had a significant effect on the growth components and yield of Lablab purpureus in the semi-arid zone of Nigeria.

  An experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of sowing methods on the growth and herbage yield of Lablab (Lablab purpureus) at 13° 1’N, 5° 15’E in the semi-arid zone of Nigeria. Treatments consisted of three sowing methods (Broadcasting, Dibbling and Drilling). The experiment was designed as a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching and Research Farm in 2005/2006 cropping season. Plant height, leaf length, leaf width, leaf number and stand count yield were evaluated in every two weeks for ten weeks to monitor crop growth rate under different sowing methods. Herbage yield was estimated at the end of tenth week. Results indicated that mean number of leaves per plant and yield were significantly (p<0.05) affected by different sowing methods. Dibbling method recorded the highest number of leaves (4 plant-1) at 4 WAP (weeks after planting) while drilling recorded the least number of leaves (1 plant-1) at 10 WAP. Similarly, dibbling recorded the highest (p<0.05) yield of 1010 kg ha-1. It was therefore concluded that dibbling is the best method of sowing Lablab purpureus in the semi-arid environment of Sokoto district.

  The study was conducted to evaluate the growth performance and nutrient digestibility of fattening Uda rams fed Alkali treated neem kernel cake. The experiment was conducted at the Teaching and Research Farm of Usmanu Danfodiyo University. Sixteen Uda rams were randomly allotted to treatment diets A, B, C and D with 0, 8.33, 16.67 and 24.99% levels of inclusion of ATNKC, respectively. The study lasted for 105 days consisting of 84 days feeding trial and 21 days of digestibility trial which comprised of 14 days for adaption and seven days for collection of feaces. The dry matter digestibility for all the nutrients in the control and test diets was comparable. The performance of the sheep in treatment B recorded the best ADG of 166.67g/day and highest dry matter intake in treatment A. It was recommended in the study that alkali treated neem kernel cake can be safely included in feed of sheep up to 24.99% for the rams.
