ABSTRACT
Growth and yield parameters of bambara groundnut [Vigna subterranea L. Verdc. landraces: White Seed Coat (WSC), Black Seed Coat (BSC) and Light Red Seed Coat (RSC)] were evaluated under organic and inorganic fertilization in order to determine the field performance, for the improvement of smallholder agriculture in Cameroon. Four fertilizer application rates (0, 3, 6 and 12 t ha-1) of Water Lettuce (WL) and Poultry Manure (PM) and four fertilization rates (0, 100, 150 and 200 kg ha-1) of N, P and K were used in a randomized complete block design experiment with four replications. Application of WL or PM at 12 t ha-1 significantly (p
