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

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

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...

Effect of daniella olivera wood biochar on the growth and biomass of maize (zea mays l.) in Lafia, north central Nigeria

The study was carried out on the effect, of Daniella wood Biochar on the growth and biomass of maize harvested 8 weeks after sowing in a pot experiment. Pots were filled with 5kg of normal soil (oxisol) and biochar was thoroughly mixed with the soil and six treatments were applied (4, 8, 12. 16 and 20tha-1 of biochar and control). The treatments were replicated three times which gave a total of 18 treatments. The...
