Title: Effects of Rhizobium Inoculation and N-fertilization on the Productivity of Two Faba Bean Cultivars
Author: Osman, Awad G.; Hag Elamin, N.A.; Elsheikh, Elsiddig A.E.
Abstract: A factorial field experiment was carried out to study the effect of Rhizobium inoculation and nitrogen fertilization on faba bean productivity. Results from two faba beans cultivars, namely Agabat and Silaim, showed that both Rhizobium inoculation and nitrogen fertilization significantly increased yield (Kg/feddan). Rhizobium inoculation gave significantly higher yielded Agabat in the Rhizobium inoculation and nitrogen fertilization treatments. The financial analysis, adopting simple cost/benefit analysis techniques and using real prices for the 1992/93, showed that both treatments were financially feasible, but the net return obtained from Rhizobium inoculation were by far greater that those of nitrogen fertilization for the two Rhizobium inocualtin were by far greater than those of nitrogen fertilization for the two cultivars. At the same time, Silaim Cultivar recorded higher returns compared with Agabat.
