Population Level of Bean Rhizobia in the Soil of Semi-Arid South-East Kenya and Assessment of Symbiotic Behaviour
(Faculty of Science Kenyatta University, 2001)
The major objective of this study was to investigate Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF) in common bean in semi-arid south-east Kenya. The population of indigenous rhizobia specific to common bean was determined using the ...
Biological Nitrogen Fixation in Selected Legumes of the Semi-Arid Makueni District of Southeast Kenya
(Journal of Agriculture in the Tropics and Subtropics, 1999-10)
The major objective of this study was to investigate biological nitrogen fixation in two main legumes (green gram and common bean) grown in semi-arid southeast Kenya. Nodulation experiments on the two legumes were carried ...
Nitrogen fixation by common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in pure and mixed stands in semi-arid south-east Kenya
(Science Direct, 2001-01)
Research was carried out in the field on the effect of intercropping common bean and maize crops in a semi-arid zone of south-east Kenya over two rainy seasons in 1997. The experimental design was a randomised complete ...
Nitrogen Fixation by Vigna radiata L. Wilczek in Pure and Mixed Stands in SE-Kenya
(CSA Illumina, 1999)
Greenhouse and field experiments were carried out to determine the number of rhizobia in soils of SE-Kenya, nodulation and nitrogen fixation by green grams in two cropping systems was also determined. The Most Probable ...
Population Levels of Indigenous Bradyrhizobia Nodulating Promiscuous Soybean in two Kenyan Soils of the Semi-arid and Semi-humid Agroecological Zones
Soybeans grown in Africa have been selected to nodulate effectively with indigenous Bradyrhizobium spp. populations since Bradyrhizobium japonicum populations are considered absent or in very low numbers in African soils. ...
