Effect of Methods of Placement and Rate of Leucaena Leaves Application of Taro

Joselito A. Payot, Sergio E. Abit and Luvimin A. Evangelio


Depth of placement of ipil-ipil herbage failed to give significant effect on all agronomic and yield characters of upland taro. However, rates of fertilizer application significantly influenced the parameters tested. In general, the agronomic and yield parameters increased with an increase in ipil-ipil herbage application except for non-marketable corms. Notable differences were observed between the unfertilized and ipil-ipil treated plants.

Keywords: Leucaena leucocephala. Fertilizer source. Method of placement. Taro. Agronomic characters. Yield and yield components.
