The research for this study was carried out at Ohawu Agricultural College Experimental site from December, 2014 to February, 2015. The research work was aimed at evaluating the effect of neem leaves, poultry manure and their combination in soil amendments on the growth and yield of Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). The Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) was used with four treatments which were replicated thrice. The treatments were: Control (unamend soil), 5kg neem leaves/kg of soil, 5kg poultry manure/kg of soil and 2.5kg neem leaves + 2.5kg of poultry manure/kg of soil. The parameters considered for the assessment were vine length, number of leaves, fruits length harvested and fresh weight of fruits harvested. The data obtained were analysed using the computer software GENSTAT to run the analysis of variance (ANOVA) and the mean values were separated at 0.05 (5%) for the Least Significant Difference (LSD).
