IMPROVING THE QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF FORAGES PRODUCED FROM INTERCOPPING OF FABA BEAN (VICIA FABA L.) WITH FORAGE OATS IN LEMO DISTRICT, HADIYA ZONE, ETHIOPIA

Abstract:

Faba bean (Vicia faba L.), also called ‘broad bean or horse bean’ is an annual crop, which mainly grows in the highlands of Ethiopia for human consumption. The objective of this study was to improve the quantity and quality of forages produced from intercropping of faba bean (Vicia faba L.) with forage oats (Avena sativa L.) on forage biomass, straw, grain yields, and straw quality. Farmers have an experience of not weeding faba bean plots to get more weed biomass. The field trial involved each farmer has 2(10×30) m2 large plots and each plot divided in to (3*10) m2 for two faba bean varieties and three treatment practices The land was selected carefully for uniformity of slope and fertility. Soil was prepared carefully before sowing. Samples were taken from each treatment plots beginning before soil samples from the upper 15 cm to lower 30cm, the final after harvest soil sample from each treatment plot. The highest (P
