    A field experiment to evaluate blended fertilizer types and validation of soil fertility map based on fertilizer recommendation was conducted at 10 sites on-farmers’ fields in Lemu Bilbilo and Asasa districts during 2014 and 2015 cropping seasons. The experiment was conducted to compare the effects of multi-nutrient blends that included macro- and micro-nutrients (N, P, K, S, B, and Zn) among each other and against the conventional N and P rate recommendation from Urea and DAP fertilizers. The experiment consisted of six treatments viz. recommended NP and five different types of blended fertilizers laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. The P and S containing fertilizers were drilled along seed line at planting while N was split applied in such a way that half was applied at planting and the remaining half was applied at tillering stage.
