SUBSTRATE MACRO-NUTRIENT LEVELS’ REFLECTION ON M.OLEIFERA CRUDE LEAF PROTEIN CONTENT
AND CHLOROPHYLL ABSORBANCE

The study reveals a positive association between high absorbance levels of M.oleifera leaf chlorophyll to high leaf protein content, and high soil substrate Nitrogen-Phosphorus ratio.
To check on the effect of fertilizers applied to the soil, we must determine leaf chlorophyll absorbance or crude leaf protein levels.
