Grain yield of barley as affected by cropping sequence and fertilizer application in Southeastern Ethiopia
(African Crop Science Society, 1997)
Cropping systems in the Ethiopian highlands involve rotations of cereals with grain legume and oilseed crops; the proportional allocation among crop species varies with altitude, rainfall, and soil type. Barley (Hordeum ...
Improvement in yield of bread wheat cultivars released in Ethiopia from 1949 to 1987
(African Crop Science Society, 1995)
Thirteen bread wheat ( Triticum aestivum check for this species in other resources L.) cultivars popular in the highlands of Ethiopia and representative of the period from 1949 to 1987 were studied for two cropping seasons ...
Response of bread wheat to rate and timing of nitrogen application in marginal rainfall zone in Ethiopia
(African Crop Science Society, 1994)
Nitrogen fertilizer rate by timing trials were conducted on bread wheat (Triticum aeslivum L) in peasant farmers' fields during two annual cropping seasons for three years in a drought-prone district of southeastern Ethiopia. ...
Performance of early maturing Katumani and Kito maize composites under drought at the seedling and flowering stages
(African Crop Science Society, 1998)
Two widely-used open pollinated maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars from East Africa, Katumani and Kito composites, developed and improved for early maturity, grain yield and drought escape were evaluated for drought tolerance ...
Yield stability of stem borer resistant maize hybrids evaluated in regional trials in east Africa
(Academic Journals, 2012)
Twenty-seven stem borer-resistant maize hybrids and three checks were evaluated in 14 locations in Kenya and Ethiopia to study the genotype x environment interaction (GEI) and yield stability. An analysis of variance was ...
