Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) belongs to the Poaceae family. In Kenya, it is grown in Western, Eastern, Northern Rift valley and some parts of Central province and it is cultivated majorly for its seeds, although it can also be done for fodder
A proper nutrition is essential for an improved productivity. This involves supplying the crop with both macro and micronutrients, which can be achieved through the application of basal and foliar fertilizers. Macroelements are required in relatively large quantities e.g., Nitrogen, Potassium, while microelements are needed in smaller quantities, e.g. Boron,…
Pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan) is a grain legume crop in the family Fabaceae. It is cultivated in the semi-arid tropics. In Kenya, pigeon pea is the third most widely grown pulse crop. Besides other regions, pigeon pea is largely cultivated in Ukambani and Coastal regions in large pieces of land.
Bean crop requires a proper nutrition, for optimal productivity. This involves the application of both basal and foliar fertilizers which provide macro and micronutrient elements. Macroelements are required in relatively large quantities e.g., Nitrogen, Potassium, while microelements are needed in smaller quantities, e.g. Boron, Copper.
