A key factor under saline conditions is the disturbance of osmotic potential that results in imbalance of nutrients in plants, while the application of sulfur not only improves the growth and nutrient status, but also improves the salt tolerance in plants. Thus, a study was carried out to determine the role of sulfur in salt tolerance of crop plants. Continue reading

Zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) are important nutrients for both human and plants and their soil deficiency is a worldwide concern. This study investigated the benefits of using different rates of sole Zn and Fe along with their combinations on maize crude protein (CP) concentration, ether extract (EE) and crude fiber(CF). And some agronomic traits including dry biomass, grain yield and photosynthesis were examined as well. Continue reading

Abstract

This study was carried out to determine the effect of intercropping Maize with Soybean on soil fertility. The study was conducted at two sites and evaluated three Soybean varieties (hybrid SB19, GAZELLE – a local variety, hybrid TGX1990-5F) as sole crop and intercropped with maize, with maize pure stand as control. In the intercropped plots, one row of Soybean was planted after every alternate row of maize. Continue reading

The production capacity of intercropped model of maize (Zea mays) with black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) | IJAAR

Abstract

A study was conducted to investigate the intercropping of legumes with cereals in different space as an approach to improve the soil nutrient content, the forage quality and the yield of cereals. Black locust was cultivated alone and intercropped with maize as follows: 2 rows maize to 2 rows Black locust (2M2R), 2 rows maize to 4 rows Black locust (2M4R), 2 rows maize to 6 rows Black locust (2M6R); 4 rows maize to 2 rows Black locust (4M2R), 4 rows maize to 4 rows Black locust (4M4R), 4 rows maize to 6 rows Black locust (4M6R) and 6 rows maize to 2 rows Black locust (6M2R), 6 rows maize to 4 rows Black locust (6M4R), 6 rows maize to 6 rows Black locust (6M6R).
