Soil Fertility Management for Soybean Intensification in Western Kenya
Large soybean yield gaps on smallholder farms in Kenya are associated with multiple soil constraints, including nutrient depletion, low organic matter, and soil acidity. Integrated nutrient management practices are necessary to increase productivity, particularly on degraded course-textured soils.DOI: 10.24047/BC10223
