Abstract

Soybean is an important crop not only in African countries, but also in the entire world being one of the most protein containing legume from its seeds which is used as food among other uses of the crop such as Nitrogen fixation. However, in Africa, low production levels have been recorded over the years with Africa contributing to 1% of the entire world soybean production. This paper therefore sought to determine the yield production for soybean varieties under different spacing on maize intercrop. The paper adopted experimental research design. From the analysis results on the measure of the total yield production for soybean varieties on different spacings on maize intercrop, the study established that DPSB variety seeds had the highest average weight while Gazelle and Nyala variety had the least average weight of seeds. The researcher recommended DPSB19 variety at 30cm with an average of 14.10335g with only the research boundary factors maintained on the total yield production for soybean varieties on different spacing on maize intercrop.
