Yield response of maize (Zea mays L.) to crop residue management on two major soil types of Alemaya, Eastern Ethiopia. I. Effects of varying rates of applied and residual N and P fertilizers



Yield response of maize (Zea mays L.) to crop residue management on two major soil types of Alemaya, Eastern Ethiopia. I. Effects of varying rates of applied and residual N and P fertilizers



Nutrient cycling in agroecosystems 54(1): 65-71



Field trials were conducted on two soil types for seven years (1988-1994) to investigate grain yield response of maize to crop residue application as influenced by varying rates of applied and residual N and P fertilizers. Yearly application of N and P fertilizers at both one-half and full recommended rates resulted in grain yield increases of more than 500 and 1100 kg ha(-1), respectively over application of only crop residue. Moreover, grain yield responses due to residual N and P fertilizers applied only during the first year were found to be comparable to the yearly applications of these fertilizers. Rainfall and soil type have exerted considerable influences on the grain yield response obtained in this study. Grain yield exhibited a corresponding decrease with decreasing rainfall. Grain yield increases on Typic Pellustert were relatively higher than on Typic Ustorthent.
