application time/period

What is the best time to apply fertilizer?


  • The best time to apply fertilizer depends on the specific crop and soil conditions. In general, it is recommended to apply fertilizer before planting or at planting time to ensure that the nutrients are available to the plants as they grow. However, for some crops, such as maize, a split application of fertilizer may be more effective, with some fertilizer applied before planting and additional fertilizer applied during the growing season. It is important to follow the recommendations for the specific crop and to test the soil regularly to determine nutrient levels and fertilizer needs.
