Title: Bradyrhizobium Inoculation and/or Chicken Manure and Sulphur Fertilization of Soybean (Glycine max L.): Changes in Physical Characteristics and Chemical Composition of The Seeds
Author: Ibrahim, Khalid A.; Elsheikh, Elsiddig A.E.; Babiker, Elfadil E.
Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at Shambat, Sudan (Latitude 15o 40´ N and Longitude 32o 32´ E) in three consecutive seasons (2000/03) to investigate the effect of Bradyrhizobium inoculation, chicken manure and sulphur fertilization on physical characteristics and chemical composition of soybean (Glycine max L.) seeds. The results showed that chicken manure and sulphur fertilization in the presence or absence of Bradyrhizobium inoculation and their interactions significantly (P $ 0.05) improved hydration coefficient and cookability of the seeds. Moisture and ash contents were not affected while fat, fiber, protein and carbohydrates were greatly affected especially when 10 t/fed chicken manure or 100 kg/fed sulphur were applied with or without inoculation. However, inoculation greatly affected the chemical composition of the seeds. Tannin content of the seeds was increased by application of fertilizers especially when accompanied by inoculation. However, the in vitro protein digestibility was significantly (P $= 0.05) improved especially when chicken manure or sulphur was applied to inoculated seeds. The results also indicated that all measured parameters increased with increasing level of amendments (manure or sulphur) and the highest value of each parameter was observed with either 10 t/fed chicken manure or 100 kg/fed sulfur.
