Abstract

Soil acidity and deficiencies of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) are considered as the major causes of low wheat yields in Uasin Gishu County, Kenya. In this County, average annual wheat grain yields realized by large-scale farmers have always been low with an average of 2.34 t ha-1, while smallholder farmers get much lower yields of as low as 0.7 tha-1. The study aimed at investigating response of wheat grain, straw yields, and ….
