ABSTRACT 

municipal solid waste (MSW) as soil organic input has become a corn Zaria urban farming. This is due to its high nutritive effect on crops'his waste has some negative effects on the quality of soil and cropsrefore examines the effects of municipal soliel vvasfe application on send crop qualities in Zaria urban area norlhern Nigeria. Soil sarnped from eight irrigated farm plots where municipal solid waste is u sec! znemice! fertilizer as soil organic amendment and one plot (the c csrrrr-cnemicet fertilizer is used at two standarcl dept"hs_- 0-19cm (top soi!) cub soil) in two seasons (dry and wet). In aH~ 2""16 soil samples \lvere Ie two seasons and determined (using standard laboratory rnefh csperties: physical, chemical, and heavy mefal concentrations (Sa rrcilk density, porosity, moisture content, pH_, organic matter, a vaifas, total nitrogen, exchangeable cations (Ga_, mg_, K and Na), f~xGha'EC base saturation, Fe, co, Mn, Zn, Pb, JV,j ar7d Go). Both total and sl concentrations were determined by tan nery a rrct double acid rneth c. Furthermore, water samples from the irrigafion vvater source in the abani and Galma) were collected and tesfeel Tor heavy metal concEX-Ray Fluorescence (XRF). In eoditicrrr, vegetable crops (cabbttuce, spinach and tomato) from irrigated farm sites were colJed for total eJement concentrations by taI7nery acid method. F~earscoefficient was used to test the levels of significant of the e tes rrrei 0.05 with the use of SPSS 10.00 vetsicrrr.
