Acclimatization and Performance Evaluations of Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas L. Lam) on Yield and Yield Components in Different Agro-ecologies of Northern Ethiopia

The study aimed at evaluating the genotype by environment interactions (GEI) on acclimatization of sweetpotato genotypes to the farmers’ field conditions. A Field evaluation was done on six sweetpotato genotypes planted in RCBD, three replications in three different agro-ecologies. These genotypes were previously (2012, 2014) tested for yield performance in the same environments. Data collected were subjected to ANOVA....

Effects of In-situ Moisture Conservation Techniques on Maize (Zea mays) yield and yield components in Moisture Deficit area of Dugda Woreda, Ethiopia.

The study was conducted during 2018 cropping season at Dugda Woreda to investigate the effect of in situ moisture conservation techniques on grain yield and yield components of maize. The treatments comprised of tied ridge, furrow closed at both end and farmer’s practices( as the control). The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design(RCBD) with three replication. The grain yield and thousand...

Greenhouse Assessment of Microbial Biomass Carbon and Nitrogen as Influenced by Compaction, Bradyrhizobium Inoculation and Nitrogen Fertilizer Application in Maize-soybean Cropping Systems

Soil microbial biomass (MB) is the main driving force in nutrients cycling, especially carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) which are often served as good soil productivity indicator in integrated management practices of agricultural ecosystems. This study was designed under greenhouse experiment to assess the effect of soil compaction, Bradyrhizobium inoculation and nitrogen fertilizer applicationon microbial...
