2011

Response of Maize under Plastic Mulch to Controlled Release Urea (CRU) in Yunnan, 2011 The majority of field controlled-release urea (CRU) experiments conducted on maize in recent years were arranged in north China where 80% of maize in China is grown. In 2011, a field experiment was carried out in Yunnan, a big maize producer in south China, to investigate performance of CRU in a high fertility sloping land soil under plastic mulch in humid climate with irregular drought spells in summer.
