Interpretive Summary

Nutrient Management of Cotton and Processing Tomato with Drip Irrigation in Xinjiang Province, 2011 Agriculture in Xinjiang is water dependent, and more than 90% of crops here are irrigated. Drip irrigation continues to be most popular in crops such as cotton and processing tomato. The study in 2011 mainly focused on balanced fertilization and P management in cotton and processing tomato.

Nutrient Management and Balanced Fertilization in Xinjiang, 2009 About 90% of agriculture in Xinjiang is irrigated and drip irrigation continues to be most popular in crops such as cotton and processing tomato. This study investigated nutrient responses and management for improved nutrient use efficiency in the region’s main crops in 2009.

Nutrient Management and Balanced Fertilization in Xinjiang, 2008 Cotton and tomato are the main cash crops in Xinjiang. Experiments on nutrient responses, N and P application rate, and methods for improving N use efficiency were investigated for these crops in 2008. An optimum (OPT) fertilizer rate trial on processing tomato in Ma’nasi County found 300-120-105 kg N-P2O5-K2O/ha to be most effective.

Nutrient Management and Balanced Fertilization in Xinjiang, 2007 Experiments and demonstrations of nutrient management and balanced fertilization in Xinjiang were conducted on processing tomato, cotton, and watermelon in Manasi County, as well as corn in Changji City. Experiments on processing tomato found application of 270-150-150 kg N-P2O5-K2O/ha could produce 27. 9 t/ha, 20. 5 t/ha, and 13.

Nutrient Management and Balanced Fertilization in Xinjiang, 2006 Experiments of nutrient management and balanced fertilization in Xinjiang were conducted on cotton in Awati County, corn in Changji City, grape and processing tomato at Toutunhe Farm, and watermelon in the Anningqu National Grey Soil Monitored Village.
