Offensive land uses system with continuous growing of similar crops on the same land largely affect soil physical condition, crop development and had big concerns on long term adverse effects of environmental pollution. The choice of sequence highly based on agricultural system, finance and environmental condition. Conventional monoculture agricult...
Field experiment was carried out during 2004-2006 for three consecutive years in Humbo, south region of Ethiopia, with the objective to investigate three planting methods (flat, open and tied ridge).and four plant spacing (80 × 20, 80 × 25, 90 × 20, 90 × 25 cm). Cotton variety 'Sele' was used in the experiment. Average of three years data revealed...
Ambericho (IG-51664) with a large and white seeded field pea variety was selected and developed by Areka Agricultural Research Center, southern Ethiopia. This variety was selected from the regional variety trial tested together 15 other test genotypes including local and standard checks at 8 environments. Finally the variety was officially released...
A field experiment was conducted at Goffa district of southern Ethiopia for two consecutive years (2004 and 2006). The objective of the study was to determine the favorable sowing time and to assess the effect of different moisture conservation methods on the performance of different varieties of maize. The experiment was laid out in a randomized c...
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is an important legume crop in Ethiopia. Its production and productivity is affected by different agronomic management practices. In many areas of south region of Ethiopia, farmers allow weeds believing that it provide physical support for the crop. However, weeds are known to have many harmful effects and are not expec...
Field studies were conducted to evaluate the effect of maize (Zea mays L.) intercropped in cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) on land use of the cropping system. The studies were performed for two years in 2005/2006 and 2006/2007 growing years at Goffa, south region of Ethiopia. Maize was sown between the rows of cassava at the same time with cassa...
The major goal of this project is to rehabilitate degraded land and to support and sustainable improve the livelihoods of landless married households . The improved vegetative cover will lead to a decreased risk of flooding as well as better soil fertility. In the long term, the project stimulates the regeneration of forests by reducing the consumption of firewood of rural communities
