Evaluation of the N supply by soils in La Frailesca, Chiapas, México

IPNI-2014-MEX-58

Farmers and advisers in this region need science-based recommendations to manage N, which is the main nutrient applied. This project was conducted in 2014 to collect data on the amounts of N supplied by soils that would help in making better estimates of the amounts of N needed to attain yield targets. Six plots (five rows spaced at 0. 8 m by 5. 0 m) were marked in seven locations. Read more
