Fertilizer Requirement (kg/acre)
Nutrient Requirement (kg/acre)
Apply well rotten FYM@8tonnes/acre and mix it well before sowing.
In the absence of FYM, application of nitogen@60kg/acre in the form of urea@135kg/acre and phosphorus@12kg/acre in the form of SSP@75kg/acre. Application of urea@45kg/acre and full dose of phosphorus should be done at the time of sowing. Remaining urea is applied in two equal splits i.e. 30 and 60days after sowing.
In the presence of FYM, the nitrogen dose should be 48kg/acre (i.e. urea@105kg/acre).
In potassium deficient soils, application of potassium@12kg/acre (MOP@20kg/acre) should be done at the time of sowing. In boron deficient soils, application of boron@400gm (borax@4kg) should be done at the time of sowing.
