Simulation of sediment transport to Sawah rice fields by applying the water erosion prediction project (WEPP) model to a watershed in Ghana

Inland valleys are being used under the Sawah technology for rice production to reduce rice imports to Ghana. Sawah technology is assumed to benefit from geological fertilization. However, there is no quantitative information on runoff and sediment flows in the agricultural watershed of Ghana. This study was carried out at Biemso in the southern part of the country. The aim was to estimate runoff and sediment transport...

Genotypic variations in phosphorus use efficiency and yield of some groundnut cultivars grown on an Alfisol at Samaru, Nigeria

A field trial was conducted in 2008 at the Institute for Agricultural Research farm at Samaru, to evaluate the  phosphorus uptake, phosphorus use efficiency (PUE) and yield potentials, of five groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) genotypes (SAMNUT 10, 11, 21, 22 and 23). Four levels of phosphorus (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg P2O5 ha-1) were applied to each genotype in a randomized complete block design (RCBD )...

Nitrogen and sulphur fertilizers effects on yield, nitrogen uptake and nitrogen use efficiency of upland rice variety on irrigated Fulvisols of the Afar region, Ethiopia

The present study was conducted in 2009/10 to investigate the effect of N and S fertilization on yield, N uptake, N use efficiency, and grain protein content of the upland NERICA-4 rice variety. The layout of the experiments was randomized complete block designs with three replications, where in 2009 crop season, the effect of five N rates (N0 = 0, N1 = 36, N2 = 59, N3= 82 and N4 = 105 kg N ha-1) without S and in...
