What is the best method to apply fertilizer?


  • The best method to apply fertilizer depends on the type of fertilizer, the crop, and the soil conditions. However, some common methods include broadcasting the fertilizer uniformly over the soil surface, banding or placing the fertilizer in a row close to the seed or plant, and side-dressing the fertilizer in between rows or plants. The choice of method should take into consideration the fertilizer type, the desired nutrient concentration, the planting system, and the crop growth stage. It is also important to follow manufacturer instructions and recommended application rates to avoid over-fertilization, which can lead to environmental pollution and crop damage.
