This study examines the existing poultry waste management and utilization technique in urban vegetable farms. It analyses the implications of the management pattern on yield and revenue and further determines the socio-economic differentials of farmers on management pattern. Socio-economic survey was carried out to determine relationship between socio economic characteristics of farmers and poultry waste management while field experiments and estimations were done to determine poultry waste production input and crop yield. The result revealed that poultry waste is poorly collected, packaged and transported. Proper knowledge on treatment is lacking due to lack of skill, space, time together with paucity of capital. Availability and cost of synthetic fertilizer among other factors determine poultry waste utilization. Exotic vegetable requires more poultry waste than indigenous ones and soil characteristics play strong role in influencing poultry waste input and yield of vegetable crops. At p>0.05, there is significant difference between poultry waste utilization, crop yield and revenue in the study area.
