Crop water relationships and thermal adaptation of kathika beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and green grams (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) with special reference to temporal patterns of potential growth in the drylands of SE Kenya
(Journal of Arid Environments, 2001)
High soil temperatures influence seedling emergence as well as the performance of plant organs and yields. Temperatures of above 40°C were recorded in the topsoil of the Ferralsols of the semi-arid areas of SE Kenya during ...
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 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 ...
