Nutrient Management for Sorghum

IPNI-2013-CHN-CQ18

Sorghum is a key ingredient in Chinese liquor production. In recent years, as the demand for liquor has increased, the area planted to sorghum has also increased. The aim of this experiment was to determine the best nutrient management guides for sorghum in Chongqing. The experiment consisted of ten treatments, including four application rates of N (0, 110, 220, 330 kg N/ha), four rates of P (0, 60, 120, 180 kg P2O5/ha) and four rates of K (0, 65, 130, 195 kg K2O/ha).
