Abstract
In Nyeri District, fertilizer experiments were carried out at three sites, namely Muirungi (22.1), Chehe (22.2), and Kiganjo (22.3). The effects of nitrogen and phosphate were tested in experiment 1, and in experiment 2, the effects of N, P, potassium and farmyard manure were tested. Maize was grown as a monocrop throughout the years in module 1 and in module 2, it was intercropped with beans. Other crops such as potatoes and cabbages we~e planted in module 3. A: both sites planting time was found to be an important factor. Early planted maize gave considerably higher yields than late planted maize.
