A. Department of Soil Science Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Anambra State. Abstract Fallowing has been an efficient balance and sustainable crop production system for soil productivity especially for tropical soils. The sustainability of this soil management option in south east Nigeria has drastically reduced to almost zero, hence the use of external inputs in the form of organic waste has become imperative. Organic waste has been used as soil conditioner since ancient times and its benefits are yet to be fully realised in crop production activities. Organic wastes release nutrients slowly and steadily, improve soil nutrient status and recycling, activate soil microbes, soil physical attributes, crop yield and good fruits often reflected by consumers, public health and environmental harmony. This paper reviews various contributions of organic waste to soil productivity and crop yield and its possibility in sustaining crop production activities in tropical soil. Keywords: Crop yield, organic waste, nutrient recycling.
