Interpretive Summary

Balanced Fertilization for Sesame in Anhui, 2008 Sesame is one of the main oil-bearing crops in Anhui Province, with a current crop area of over 160,000 ha. The Soil and Fertilizer Institute of Anhui, under the support of the IPNI China Program, conducted five field trials in Linquan County in 2008 to recommend better N, P, and K fertilization rates and increase fertilizer use efficiency.

Balanced Fertilization for High Yield and Quality of Sesame in Anhui, 2007 Sesame is one of the main oil-bearing crops in Anhui Province, with over 160,000 ha planted in the Province. Balanced fertilization (BF) field trials were established by the Soil and Fertilizer Institute, Anhui Academy of Agricultural Sciences, in 2007 in order to improve nutrient management of the crop. Balanced application of K fertilizer increased sesame yield and farm income in Bianzhuang Village, Linquan County.

Balanced Fertilization for High Yield and Fertilization Efficiency on Lettuce and Sesame in Anhui, 2006 In 2006, the Soil and Fertilizer Institute of Anhui implemented seven field trials to study balanced fertilization specific to sesame and Guoyang lettuce. In recent years, yield and quality for these two crops has declined. Sesame is a major oil crop in Anhui Province, presently covering over 160,000 ha.
