Abstract:
A field trial was conducted for two consecutive cropping season of 2016-2017 (”Bona”) on farmers’ fields at different sites (Sinja & Aloshe) of Goba District and (Jafara & Selka Oda) of Sinana District to evaluate the effect of rhizobium inoculation and diammonium phosphate (DAP) on growth, nodulation, yield and yield components of faba bean. The treatments consisted of application of biofertilizers, FB1035, FB1018, FB EAL110 singly and combination with chemical fertilizer (50kg ha-1 DAP) including control (without any fertilizer and inoculation) was used. Experiment was laid out in a randomized complete-block (RCBD) design with three replications was used. It could be concluded that, using the organic, bio-fertilizer and mineral fertilizers are benefit for enhancing the growth and yield of faba bean. It can be concluded that from these study , faba bean inoculated with rhizobia strain FB1018 at Aloshe, for Sinja FB1018 and EAL110 + 50 kg , at Jafara 1018+ 50 kg ha-1 DAP and for Selka Oda rhizobia strain in combination with phosphorus fertilizers brought yield advantage as compared to control or farm practices. Rhizobial inoculation and supplementation with phosphorus has potential in improving growth, yield, economic benefits, and photosynthesis in legumes. It is recommended to adopt and incorporate these technologies in legumes production. However, the information available demands more research to be done so as to establish the contribution of these technologies in attaining optimal production of legumes grown in the highland agro ecology of Bale zone
