Soil bulk density, soil moisture content and yield of Tef (Eragrostis tef) influenced by Acacia seyal Del canopy in Parkland agro-forestry system

The effect of Acacia seyal tree on soil bulk density, soil moisture content, grain and biomass yield of tef (Eragrostis tef) were examined on six selected comparable A. seyal trees on croplands. Composite soil samples (6 trees × 3 distances × 2 soil depths) were collected at three distances from the tree base (1, 2.5 and 9 m) and two soil depths (0-15 and 15-30 cm) in four radial directions. Grain and...

Effect of vermicompost and blended fertilizers rates on yield and yield components of Tef (Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter)

Tef is a stable crop in Ethiopia in which its yield is constrained by poor soil fertility management. Therefore, a field experiment was conducted for two consecutive years during 2016 and 2017 on clayey textural soil to assess the effect of vermicompost and inorganic fertilizer rates on yield and yield components of tef. Accordingly, field experiment with four levels of vermicompost (0, 2, 4 and 6 t ha-1) and four...
