MYCORRHIZA CO-ASSOCIATION WITH Aspilia pruliseta Schweif. AND PHOSPHORUS UPTAKE EFFECTS ON GROWTH OF GADAM SORGHUM IN THE SEMI-ARID LOWER EASTERN KENYA

Article in Press

Mycorrhiza fungi are important components of soil microbiota in the rhizosphere and greatly influence the uptake of mineral elements by plants. A greenhouse experiment was conducted at the University of Embu to evaluate effect of Aspilia pruliseta rhizosphere mycorrhiza on phosphorus uptake by gadam sorghum. Pots were filled with soil from a predetermined source in the semi-arid Gakurungu, Tunyai and Kanyuambora regions of...

Assessment of available livestock feed resources and constraints in selected areas of South Gondar Zone, Northwestern Ethiopia

Article in Press

This study was conducted in the selected districts of South Gondar Zone of the Amhara National Regional State which represent highland and mid altitude agro-ecology of the Zone. The aim of the study was to identify the major types of available feed resources, determine the quantity of feeds, and identify the major constraints of livestock production. Two hundred ten rural households from both agro-ecologies were...

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

Article in Press

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...

Genetic variation and Association for Kernel yield and Yield Related Traits of Released Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Varieties in Abergelle District, Northern Ethiopia

Article in Press

Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.), also known as monkey-nut, peanut, earthnut and goobers, is a major cash crop and widely grown in all the tropical and subtropical regions of the world for direct use as food, oil and high protein meal, and is the second most important lowland oilseed crop after sesame in Ethiopia. However, its production and productivity is considerably low in Abergelle areas, Northern Ethiopia due to...

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

Article in Press

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...
