Abstract

Results of recent field research dealing with methods of fertilizer application are reported and discussed. Field work included the use of solution nitrogen (N), N and phosphate (P2O5) suspensions, and practical alternatives for the application of granular N and P2O5 fertilizers. The importance of placement of solution N is illustrated, compared to post-emergent broadcast application. The increasingly important dilemma with respect to fertilizer application under zero or minimum tillage management is discussed. Thirdly, some of the popular methods of application of N and P2O5 and the need for starter P2O5 are discussed in light of the growing number of alternatives presented to the farmer.
