The comparative efficiency of organic and synthetic fertilizers were studied on maize and cowpea, two staple Nigerian crops. Chemical fertilizer did not support yield as much as poultry manure (PM) or arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), individual or in a combined state. The combination of PM and AMF was the best application expressing yield in form of shoot productivity. Glomus clarum was a good fertilizing candidate in this study
Keywords: Glomus clarum, maize, cowpea, fertilizers, shoot.
