Field validation of Nutrient Expert Soybean in China

Nutrient Expert Soybean was developed to evaluate and validate fertilizer recommendation method based yield response and agronomic efficiency as compared with soil testing and farmer's practice.

IPNI-2014-CHN-NES

The objective of this study was to understand the effect of Nutrient Expert® (NE)-based fertilizer recommendation, in combination with rhizobium culture seed treatment, on soybean yield and nitrogen use efficiency in Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning provinces in China. The study had five on-farm validation experiments in the three provinces. Read more

Interpretive Summary

The objective of this study was to understand the effect of Nutrient Expert® (NE)-based fertilizer recommendation, in combination with rhizobium culture seed treatment, on soybean yield and nitrogen use efficiency in Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning provinces in China. The study had five on-farm validation experiments in the three provinces.

The objective of this study is to validate Nutrient Expert® (NE)-based fertilizer recommendation for soybean grown in Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, and Inner Mongolia. Results are directly compared against those obtained with farmer practice (FP) and a soil test-based recommendation. This study had 11 field validation experiments in each province. Each individual site had a site-specific recommendation, but NE-based plots received an average of 40-55-53 kg N-P2O5-K2O/ha.

This study was conducted to validate the Nutrient Expert(R) (NE)-based fertilizer recommendation for soybean in farmer fields and compare it against farmer fertilization practice (FP) and soil test-based fertilizer recommendation. 2014 was the first year for NE Soybean field validation. The study had 12 field validation experiments in Heilongjiang.
