Limestone rate influencing common bean in Uganda was compiled to test whether limestone can increase yield and nutritional content of common bean on red soil in Uganda. Using the databases, we report how limestone and NP fertilizers affected common bean stand density, pod density, seed number per pod, individual seed weight, grain yield, bean biomass yield, bean height, pod harvest index, and grain Fe and Zn concentrations in two growing seasons.
