The study aimed at identifying animal manure which influences soil health indicators (microbial abundance), was conducted at Lilongwe university of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) crop and soil science student farm. The experiment had four treatments; cattle manure., goat manure,pig manure and chicken Manuel. Treatments were arranged in RCB replicated three times. The ANOVA shows that there was significant difference (p<0.05) on microbial abundance. It was discovered that Cattle manure gave greatest difference among the treatments. Therefore, based on the findings it is encouraged to apply Cattle manure by farmers so as to improve soil quality and soil health indicators.
