Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is economically an important crop in Ethiopia. The productivity of Faba bean in Ethiopia
has been declined due to poor management practices of Bio fertilizer rates usage. Three rates of Bio fertilizer (0,500 and 750
gha
-1) treatments were laid out in RCBD with three replications. Days to 50% flowering, days to 90% physiological maturity,
plant height, number of productive tillers, total biomass yield, numbers of pods per plant, number of nodule per plant, effective
nodule, grain yield and straw yield were recorded and significantly affected. The maximum grain yield (3278 kgha
-1) was
recorded from 750gha
-1 bio-fertilizer treatment. About 750 gha-1 Bio fertilizer rates were preferable for the study area. However,
further study has to be done under different seasons and locations to come up with workable recommendations related to the
present study.
