Soybean is a legume crop that can be used as an important source of protein for farmers who lack access to resources and cannot purchase animal products; it can also be used as an oil crop, an animal feed, chicken meal, and to increase soil fertility. In contrast to the global average, the country's soybean productivity is incredibly poor. Thus, the aim of this review was to assess how inorganic fertilization affected soybean nodulation, growth, yield, and yield characteristics. According to a number of research findings, the use of various inorganic fertilizer rates generally has a considerable impact on various growth, yield, and yield-related components of soybeans. In accordance with this, the review showed that growth, yield, and yield parameters of soybean increased with increasing rates of inorganic fertilizer. Moreover, as found from this review, the findings showed that the highest yield of soybean ranged between 1960.2 kg ha-1 and 3642 kg ha-1, which was recorded in plots that were treated with high nutrients; however, the lowest grain yield of soybean ranged from 1014 kg ha-1 to 1935kg ha-1 in plots that received no nutrients. Fortunately, the maximum yield (3642 kg ha-1) observed in this review was still very low when compared to other countries; for example, the average farm yield in Russia ranged from approximately 1480 kg ha-1 to 3940 kg ha-1 for the typical farm in west central Indiana. As a result, this showed that a significant research study was required to enhance soybean production and productivity by understanding what is truly affecting soybean yield in Ethiopia.
