Determination of soybean (Glycine max L.) production yield and yield components under metekel pawe at lowland western Ethiopia


Yalew Teshome and Zewedeneh Melkie

Soybean is an important oil seed and pulse in Ethiopia. However, the yield of this crop is limited mainly due to a shortage of improved varieties suited to specific areas. This field experiment was conducted during 2019/2020 cropping season to evaluate soybean varieties for yield production at conducted on a farm field experiment in Metekel Zone Western Ethiopia in Pawe and Mandura field site the experiment contains five varieties namely Pawe-1, Pawe-2, Belesa, GTX-2644-133 and Nyala. The experiment was conducted using a randomized complete block design with three replications. Data were collected on days to maturity, plant height, branch number, pods per plant and grain yield and subjected to analysis of variance using the SAS software program. The result of this study revealed that, there was a significant difference (p>0.05 or p>0.01) among varieties in all traits. The highest (2248.0 kg ha-1) and (2147.9 kg ha-1) grain yields were recorded from Parwe-2 and Pawe-1 variety, respectively among tested treatments. Therefore, it can be concluded that the variety Pawe-2 or Pawe-1 well performed and can be recommended for the growers in the study area and its vicinity.
