Fertilizers' application
 

Time, quantity and method of application have to be chosen to suit the particular nutrient, the crop, as well as the method of cultivation.

Fertilizers can be uniformly spread or placed in soil at a specific place. Depending on the density and type of cultivation, one solution or the other may be more appropriate.

Timing of fertilizer application has a significant effect on crop yields. Proper timing increases yields, reduces nutrient losses, increases nutrient use efficiency and prevents damage to the environment. One of the most important recommendations is to select a slow-release fertilizer which provides steady growth and water quality protection - a winning combination!
