CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

            1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Soil fertility is fundamental in determining the productivity of all farming systems and is most commonly defined in terms of the ability of a soil to supply nutrients to crop (Wild, 1993). Salinization and low soil nutrient content are some of the major problem that hampers crop production on smallholder farmers field. About 20% of the world cultivated land and 50% of cropland generally affected by salinity (Lakhdar et al., 2009). Salt affected soil in Nigeria is reported to cover over 11 million hectares of unproductive naturally salt affected wastelands (Tadele, 1993)The natural affected areas are normally found in the arid and semi arid lowlands and in northern nigeria and other areas that are characterized by higher evapotranspiration rates in relation to precipitation (PGRC, 1996).With the expansion of irrigated agriculture, man’s activities contributing to the build-up and spread of salinity.

The social cost of salinization is not easy to quantify as it causes occupational and geographic shifting of the farm population and reduction in aggregate national income and expenditure. These events can have social and economic repercussions on the country as a whole.

Maintenance of high crop yields under intensive cultivation is possible only with external fertilizer inputs (organic and in organic sources fertilizer). Although inorganic fertilizers application is the quickest and easiest way of increasing yield per unit area, the problems associated with inorganic nutrient supplementation, if not judiciously handled, it can causes pollution of ground water and does not improve soil structure and may early contribute to greenhouse gases (GHG) (Gordon et al., 1993).
