Nutrient Management

PrintPrintSend to friendSend to friend

Sufficient amount of nutrients should be supplied to the crop right from transplanting to harvesting as it helps in better crop growth finally giving better yields. Ensure soil fer tility tests are done to your field and apply the nutrients accordingly recommended by the soil health report .
• 3-4 tons of FYM should be applied to the field at the time of ploughing
• Both oversupply and under supply of nutrients to the crop is a threat.
• Oversupply of nutrients results to increased susceptibility of the crop to pests, lodging, etc. 


Nursery


·        

Basal fer tilization with 0.5 kg of `N’; 0.5 kg of `P and 0.5 Kg of ‘K’ per every 100 sq m  is required to get robust seedlings, followed by another 0.5 kg `N’ at 12 days after sowing.

 


·        

Spray ZnSO4 @ 2.0 g /l for correction of Zinc deficiency  if deficiency  is observed.

 


·        

Spray 5-10 g ferrous sulphate (or) ferrous ammonium sulphate with 0.5 to 1.0 gram of citric acid per litre of water to correct Iron deficiency in the nursery crop.

 

Main Field

 


·        

Ameliorate soil acidity in upland soils of East Godavari, west Godavari and khammam districts by appropriate liming.

 


·        

In soils of excessive percolation use urea in 3-4 split dosesor use coated nitrogen fer tilizers such as neem coated urea in kavali area of Nellore and par ts of chittoor.

 


·        

Amelioration of salinity/alkalinity in east Godavari, west Godavari and Nellore districts through green manuring, drainage and appropriate Gypsum application

 


·        

Nitrogen is to be applied in three splits (at basal, at active tillering Stage & at Panicle Initiation stage) P & ‘K’ may  be applied as basal in heavy soils. In case of light soils, ‘K’ may  be applied in two equal splits i.e., at basal and at panicle initiation stage.

 


·        

For late planted conditions apply nitrogen in two splits only (65% basal and 35% at 20 DAT).
