𝑫𝒊𝒅 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘?
There are two common types of fertilizer application methods:
1. Single application- Ideal for early maturing varieties like SC Sungura 301 and SC Duma 43 and SC Duma 419. Done once at 𝟔 𝐭𝐨 𝟏𝟎 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐞.
2. Split application- Preferred for crops with long growing period like SC Tembo 73. This application is done twice to mitigate leaching and loss of fertilizer through runoff water. First application is done at 𝟔 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐞 whereas the second application is done at 𝟏𝟐 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐞.
Foliar fertilizer application can also be done and should be applied on need-basis.
