Influence of Elemental Sulphur, Oxalic Acid, and Phosphoric Acid as Acidulating Agents on Phosphorous Dissolution from Rock Phosphate
(Journal of Agriculture and Ecology Research International, 2019)
Phosphorous is a limiting mineral element in crop productivity due to its less availability and fixed form in the soil. Due to its agricultural benefit, most farmers seek for alternative method to supply phosphorous in ...
Trends in Adoption of Soil Fertility Improvement Strategies in Chuka, Eastern Kenya
(African Crop Science Society, 2003)
A study was conducted in Chuka division, eastern Kenya to assess trends in adoption of soil fertility replenishment strategies. Eighty two (82) farmers adopted the soil fertility improvement technologies during the short ...
The role of agroforestry trees in intercepting leached nitrogen in the agricultural systems of the central highlands of Kenya.
(East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal, 2003)
Application of N-rich tree biomass to crop fields in agroforestry associations can cause a build-up of mineral-N in the top soil in excess of crop demand during early stages of crop growth. It is therefore important ...
Potato-legume intercropping on a sloping terrain and its effects on soil physico-chemical properties
(Springer International Publishing, 2019)
Aims: To assess the effects of potato-legume intercropping on selected soil physical and chemical properties after four consecutive growing seasons (from the short rains in 2014 to long rains 2016). Methods: The experiment ...
Soil Greenhouse Gas Fluxes From Maize Production Under Different Soil Fertility Management Practices in East Africa
(Amer Geophysical Union, 2020)
In Sub‐Saharan Africa (SSA), few studies have quantified greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions following application of soil amendments, for development of accurate national GHG inventories. Therefore, this study quantified ...
