Field and pot studies were conducted between 2000 and 2002 at Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) Kisii and the University of Nairobi, Kabete Campus Field Station to asses the effect of fertilizer application on the population dynamics of beanflies (Ophyhmyia spp) (Dipetera: Agromyzidae), damage on plants and growth, yield and chemical composition of two resistant (EXL52 and G8047) and one susceptible (GLP2) common bean varieties (Phaseolus vulgaris L). Eight fertilizer regimes were… CONTINUE READING
