ABSTRACT
 
An experiment was carried out at the Teaching and Research Farm of Landmark University Omu-Aran, Nigeria in the Savannah ecosystem of Nigeria from November to March for evaluating the response of sweet bell pepper to Moringa Leaf Extract (MLE) and Organo Bio Degradable fertilizer (OBD+). The treatments included four levels of Organo-Bio Degradable fertilizer (0g, 20g, 40g and 60g) Moringa Leaf Extract at ratio 1:32 (v/v) was sprayed directly at the plant at 1 and 2 weeks after transplanting respectively and replicated thrice in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD).The results showed that plant height, number of leaves, fruit weight and yield of sweet bell pepper were significantly (P≤0.05) influenced by the application of  Moringa Leaf Extract and Organo-Bio Degradable fertilizer (OBD+).
Keywords: Sweet bell pepper; Moringa Leaf Extract; Organo-biofertilizer (OBD+)
