IJAAR local rice 16,04,2019By: Memen Surahman


Local varieties of rice are valuable germplasms and need to be conserved for breeding, moreover some of them are considered as precious for local festivity. Thus best cultivation technique is needed and the seed has to be made available. The research was aimed to obtain the optimum dose of fertilizer application for seed production and to investigate the after ripening duration of local rice seed of Kayeli. Continue reading

Evaluation of the combined use of organic and inorganic fertilizers on bulb onion (Allium cepa L.) yields in West Ugenya Sub-County, Kenya | IJAAR

IJAAR Allium cepa 11,04,2019By: Benedict Mbindah


Low yields due to declining soil fertility continue to be a major constraint to onion production in Kenya, necessitating imports to meet market demand. A field experiment was carried out for two seasons in West Ugenya Sub-County during the 2015 and 2016 short and long rains seasons, respectively to evaluate the effect of combining organic and inorganic fertilizers on the soil nutrient status, growing period and yield of bulb onion (Allium cepa L.).
