INTRODUCTION There has been recent concern about the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in animal production due to their negative effect on human health.

Thank you Dr. Ismet Mamode. I totally agree with you, more research needs to be done on herbal/medicinal plants. I have intensively worked on Polyalthia longifolia leaf on different animals and the results were very outstanding. In my next publication i combined the P.longifolia leaf meal with Ginger powder on egg quality and performance of laying Japanese quails.

This work is interesting with results that can be applied in poultry production.
Pls what are the common names of this plant? Did you import the seeds from India or is it found in the experimental area?
Thanks

This research work is highly inspiring especially its contributions to organic agriculture. More research of this nature will no doubt increase livestock production development in Africa. Dr. Alagbe, well done
