Effects of organic legume residues and inorganic fertilizer nitrogen on maize yield in Malawi


, : Effects of organic legume residues and inorganic fertilizer nitrogen on maize yield in Malawi. Soil fertility research for maize based farming systems in Malawi and Zimbabwe Proceedings of the Soil Fertility Network Results and Planning Workshop, Africa University Mutare, Zimbabwe, 7-11 July 1997: 165-171

The combination of inorganic fertilizers, and organic manures from cattle or legumes crops is recognized as one way to reduce the costs of inorganic fertilizers and to reduce the decline of soil fertility under smallholder cropping systems in Malawi. An experiment was conducted in 1994-97 to determine the effects of organic legume residues and inorganic fertilizer nitrogen (N) on soil N and maize yield.
