Nutrient Management on Dragon Fruit

IPNI-2010-CHN-GX13

This project was initiated in 2011 to refine the fertilizer recommendations for red dragon fruit production in Guangxi Province. The initial experiment consisted of eight treatments replicated three times. Treatments included an optimal treatment (OPT) with fertilizer application rates of 411-188-675-150-1. 3 kg N-P2O5-K2O-MgO-B/ha, OPT-N, OPT-P, OPT-K, OPT-1/2K, OPT+1/2K, OPT-Mg, and OPT-B.
