Abstract
In Kirinyaga District, fertilizer experiments were carried out at two sites, namely Kerugoya and Karaba. The first experiment tested crop responses to nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) while in the second, farmyard manure (FYM) , sulphur and potassium were included as additional treatments. Maize was grown as a monocrop in module 1. In module 2, maize was intercropped with beans or green grams while in module 3, the performances of beans, potatoes, cabbages, sunflower and green grams were tested. A summary of the findings and recommendations is given in Table 1, and detailed findings and recommendations are given in the text.
