            The demands for radish is
continuously increasing due to its importance, because of this, the search for
an economical yet effective way of increasing crop yield is therefore
essential. Like other crops, tomato requires different kinds and amounts of
nutrients for better growth and productivity. However, these nutrients are not
always present in the soil in adequate or although present, may not be
available. Hence, the presence of these nutrients for better performance is a

            Organic farming nowadays is more
recommended as it results in a harmonious environment and it used to aid the
plant to grow productively. Fertilizer from organic sources particularly
malunggay leaves that present in the surrounding and wastage pineapple fruit
from the market are among the fertilizer that need to explore.

            Malunggay is one of the world’s most
useful plants, yet often overlooked. Malunggay leaves are excellent sources of
vit. A, B, C, D, E, amino acids, cysteine and minerals such as calcium,
phosphorous, iron and magnesium that can stimulate the growth of plants and
increase crop production (Philippine Council for Health Research & Development,

pineapple is also a source of vit. A & C. It is a good source of potassium
and contains a few other minerals such as calcium, phosphorous and iron. The
fruit is rich in sugar. It has been reported that Pineapple Fruit Juice has
essential macro and micronutrients as well as other nutrients that could be
used in the plants for early root formation, production of chlorophyll and
development which results in improved plant growth and development, cited by
