Economic analysis of maize-tepary bean production using a soil fertility replenishment product (PREP-PAC) in semi-arid Eastern Kenya
(WFL publisher, 2005-04)
Continuous cropping without external nutrient inputs to soils has led to the expression of poorly productive patches in farmers’ fields in semi-arid Eastern Kenya. The smallholder farmers attempting to correct these ...
Spatial Variation in Soil Organic Carbon within Smallholder Farms in Western Kenya: A geospatial Approach
In many farming landscapes across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), soil fertility has been on the decline with significant implications on crop productivity. However, even with such a decline, soil nutrient levels still differ ...
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. ...
Farmer Tree Nursery as a Catalyst for Developing Sustainable Best Management Land Use Practices in Lake Victoria Catchments Ecosystem
(journal of Applied Science, 2007)
Support to farmer nurseries is classified as either hard referring to material inputs (tree seed, water, tools and fencing) or soft (information, training and backstopping advice). Against a background of poor services for ...
Farmer tree nurseries as a catalytst for developing sustainable best management land use practices in the nile river basin: case studies from East Africa
Support to farmer nurseries is classified as either “hard” referring to material inputs (tree seed, water, tools and fencing) or “soft” (information, training and backstopping advice). Against a background of poor services ...
Yield and Nitrogen Fixation Response by Drought Tolerant Tepary Bean (Phaseolus acutifolius A. Gray Var. Latifolius) in Sole and Maize Intercrop Systems in Semi-arid Kenya
(Asian Network for Scientific Information, 2003)
Tepary bean (TB), a drought tolerant bean variety has become popular among poor small-scale farmers in semi-arid Kenya, where it is predominantly intercropped with maize. Field experiments were conducted on effect of ...
