Thirty vegetable growers were chosen at random from the community lands of QwaQwa for this study. The research was carried out in the Qwaqwa communal vegetable garden soils of Maluti A Phofung local municipality in the Thabo Mofutsanyana area. Methodology: To evaluate fertiliser and manure applications on vegetable soils, open ended questions, close questions, and interviews were devised and employed. Results: Eighty-five percent of vegetable farmers polled are planting on seedbeds, 68.7% are resting their soils after two years of producing the same vegetable commodity, cattle manure was rated as the best manure applied at a rate of 95 percent, and gardening tools are used more than tractor and implements when tilling the soil.
