Study of P fertilizer placement in soybean

IPNI-2014-BRA-66

The agronomic effectiveness of phosphorus (P) fertilizer is affected by soil properties, and the source, rate, and placement of P fertilizer. In the Cerrado of Brazil many farmers currently apply P fertilizer on the soil surface to speed up the planting process, regardless of any agronomic criterion. The objective of this project is to study the effect of rate and placement of P application on soybean yield. Read more

Agronomic effectiveness of P fertilizer is affected by soil properties, and the source, rate, and placement of P fertilizer. In the Cerrado of Brazil, many farmers currently apply P fertilizer on the soil surface to speed up the seeding process, regardless of any agronomic criterion. The objective of this project is to study the effect of rate and place of P application on soybean yield cultivated in different levels of initial soil correction.

Agronomic effectiveness of P fertilizer is affected by the type of soil, source, rate, and placement of P application. In the Cerrado of Brazil, many farmers are currently applying P fertilizer on the soil surface to speed up the seeding process, regardless of any agronomic criterion. The objective of this project is to study the effect of rate and place of P application on soybean yield cultivated in different levels of initial soil correction.
