dc.description.abstract Scarcity of fuel wood has huge implications for agricultural productivity and food security. Due to the increasing scarcity of traditional fuel wood resources, rural communities have shifted to utilization of crop residues and cattle dung which otherwise are resources for soil fertility improvement. Widespread use of biomass as fuel energy sources has affected the level of nutrient stocks in the watersheds of Ethiopia. The objective of this study was to assess the supply and consumption patterns of fuel biomass and the amount of nutrients that could be lost from burning non-woody biomass energy sources. en
