Effect of balanced fertilizers on pineapple yield and quality in Guangxi

IPNI-2008-CHN-GX10

Effect of Balanced Fertilizers on Papaya Yield and Quality in Guangxi, 2011 This study, initiated in 2010, continued to evaluate the effects of different fertilizer treatments on fruit yield and quality of papaya grown in Nanning City, Guangxi. There were seven treatments including: an optimal treatment (OPT) and treatments individually omitting N, P, K, Mg, B, and Zn within the OPT. Since papaya response to Mo was insignificant in the previous year, it was omitted from this year’s design. Read more

There were seven treatments including: an optimal treatment (OPT) and treatments individually omitting N, P, K, Mg, B, and Zn within the OPT. Since papaya response to Mo was insignificant in the previous year, it was omitted from this year’s design.

Effect of Balanced Fertilization on Papaya Yield and Quality in Guangxi, 2010 The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of different fertilizer treatments on fruit yield and quality of papaya grown at two locations in Guangxi, Nanning City and Wuming County. There were eight treatments including: an optimal (OPT) treatment; treatments individually omitting N, P, K, Mg, B, and Zn within the OPT; and the OPT + Mo.

Effect of Balanced Fertilization on Pineapple Yield and Quality in Guangxi, 2009 This study continues to evaluate the effects of different fertilizer rates and combinations on fruit yield and . quality of pineapple grown in Guangxi. Thirteen treatments tested four rates of N (0, 188, 375, and 562 kg/ha), four rates of P (0, 75, 150, and 225 kg P2O5/ha), four rates of K (0, 300, 450, and 600 kg K2O/ha), Mg at 54 kg MgO/ha, B at 4. 5 kg borax/ha, and Zn at 4. 5 kg zinc sulfate/ha.

Effect of Balanced Fertilization on Pineapple Yield and Quality in Guangxi, 2008 Pineapple is a major fruit for the southern regions of Guangxi Province. The region’s higher rainfalls of up to 2,000 mm/year contribute to high yields, but also lead to a high potential for nutrient loss through leaching. This project’s objective is to find optimal (OPT) fertilizer rates for improved fruit yield and quality and minimal nutrient loss.
