Validation study for balanced fertilizers on red dragon fruit

IPNI-2011-CHN-GX16

This field experiment was established in 2011 to validate the fertilizer rates tested for red dragon fruit, a perennial crop for Guangxi. The experiment consisted of seven treatments including the pre-set optimal treatment (OPT) of 414-250-660-140 kg N-P2O5-K2O-MgO/ha, treatments individually omitting N, P, K, Mg, and treatment providing additional N or K. The N source was urea (46% N), single superphosphate was used for P (12% P2O5), KCl for K (60% K2O), and MgSO4 for Mg and S. Read more
