Interpretive Summary

2012

In Syria, application of mineral fertilizers is highly skewed towards N, which has led to the depletion of other nutrients like K, P and micronutrients in many soils. The objectives of this project were to determine the effect of balanced fertilization on the yield of major crops of the common cropping systems in Syria and promote and extend to farmers the most efficient fertilization and irrigation techniques.
