  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 small-scale egg production in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State. Thirty five (35) poultry farms were purposively selected from the local government area. Structured questionnaire were used to collect data and analyzed using descriptive statistics, farm budgeting model and regression analysis. The results showed that 77.40% of the egg producers were females and 71.43% attended tertiary institutions. The returns per naira invested was found to be 1.35 and the operating ratio was 0.6 indicating the venture was profitable. Regression analysis revealed that the significant variables influencing egg production were feeds (P<0.01) and flock size (P<0.001). Avian diseases constituted the most predominant constraint (91.4%), followed by feed problems (68.6%). Farmers should be encouraged on modern poultry management systems with emphasis on disease prevention and feed formulation in order to improve the production of the enterprise.
