Validation of fertilizer recommendations for soybean under high yielding crop production systems in Central and South of Russia

Fertilizer recommendations for soybean are developed and adjusted in field experiments conducted in Central and Southern Russia.

IPNI-2013-RUS-SOY56

1. Background Driven by the demand from fast developing husbandry (poultry and pig production) soybean acreage in Russia has been increased by 3. 1 times or by 1. 0 M ha during the last 10 years (from 0. 48 M ha in 2002 to 1. 48 M ha in 2012) while soybean production has been increased by 4. 3 times (from 0. 42 M t in 2002 to 1. 81 M t in 2012) as shown in Table 1. This increase in soybean production was mainly due to the corresponding increase in sown area and also yield improvement from 0. 67-0. Read more

Interpretive Summary

Two field experiments were conducted in Belgorod oblast in Central Russia on typical chernozem soils. Soils at both locations had a heavy texture, slightly acid pH, organic matter (OM) content (4 to 5%), high level of Olsen phosphorus (P) (44 to 64 ppm) and a very high level of available potassium extracted with ammonium acetate solution (256 to 338 ppm), the content of available sulfur (S) 3. 6 to 5. 6 ppm.

Two field experiments were conducted in 2015 in Krasnodar Krai, South Russia, on leached chernozem soils located in the central and northern agroecological zone of the region, respectively. Both soils (0 to 20 cm soil layer) had high clay content, neutral pH, low organic matter (3. 3 to 3. 5%), high Olsen P (16 to 17 ppm) and a very high exchangeable K (358 to 376 ppm).

Field experiments were conducted on leached chernozem, ordinary chernozem, and meadow chernozem soils in three locations of Krasnodar Krai. Soils had a fine texture, a near neutral pH (6. 6 to 7. 0), low organic matter content (2. 9 to 3. 6%), high concentrations of Olsen P (16 to 26 ppm), and very high levels of exchangeable K (272 to 505 ppm) in the top 20 cm layer.
