Soya bean Bio-Fertilizers to Boost Production and Productivity PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 11 November 2013 06:12

Soya bean is a leguminous crop and legumes have long been recognized and valued as 'soil building' crops. Soya bean fixes nitrogen from the atmosphere and adds nitrogen to the soil, increases soil reserves of organic matter and soil aeration, improves soil structure and soil water-holding capacity and makes soil easier to till and thus maintains general soil health status.

 Soya Bean

It is the most nutritionally rich crop, as its dry seed contains the highest protein and oil content among grain legumes (40 to 42% protein) with a good balance of the essential amino acids and has 18-20% oil on a dry seed weight basis. It is cheap and rich source of protein for poor farmers, who have less access to animal source protein, because of their low purchasing capacity. There is a favorable climatic and soil condition for production in South and Western Ethiopia; therefore, soybean can be easily produced both for commercial purposes as well as for subsistence farming.
