In Malawi, N and P deficiencies have been identified as major soil fertility constraints to maize (Zea mays, hybrid NSCM 41) productivity. In this study, we evaluated the effect of three rates of N and P fertilizers on maize performance in monoculture and maize intercropped with the nitrogen fixing legume gliricidia (Gliricidia sepium) in replicated field trials run for four years (2002/03-2005/06 seasons) at Makoka, in southern Malawi. Significant season-to-season variation was found in stand… CONTINUE READING
