Optimization of Spring Rapeseed Nutrition

Response of spring rapeseed to S-containing fertilizer is studied in on-farm field experiments.


Location: The Republic of Tatarstan and The Republic of Bashkortostan, Volga Federal District. Objectives: 1) Improve spring rapeseed nutrition in a forest-steppe region. 2) Adjust S-containing fertilizer rate for spring rapeseed grown on leached chernozems and grey forest soils. Goals: 1) Study the response of spring rapeseed to S-containing fertilizers. 2) Study the effect of S-containing fertilizer on seed quality of spring rapeseed. Read more

Interpretive Summary

All components of 4R Nutrient Management are considered in this project. Field studies in the Republic of Bashkortostan in 2017 were conducted at Kalinin Agricultural Enterprise, LLC (Sterlitamak District). The soils here are leached Chernozems (Voronic Chernozems Pachic) with a high organic matter content (7. 2%) and a medium concentration (9 ppm) of available sulfur (S), routinely extracted with 1M potassium chloride (KCl) solution.

An on-farm field experiment studying spring rapeseed nutrition with sulfur was conducted in 2016 in the Tyulyachi District of the Republic of Tatarstan. The grey forest soil (Humic Luvisol) at the experimental location had a heavy texture, low organic matter (OM) content (2. 0%), slightly acid pH, low mineral nitrogen (N) (9 ppm), very high Olsen-extractable phosphorus (P) (43 ppm), high exchangeable potassium (K) (153 ppm), and a very low concentration of available sulfur (S) (2.

An on-farm experiment with spring-seeded rapeseed was conducted in 2015 in Buinsk District, Tatarstan Republic. The site's leached chernozem soil (0 to 20 cm depth) had a heavy texture, high organic matter content (5. 3%), low pH (5. 6), very high Olsen P concentration (33 ppm), higher than medium exchangeable K (140 ppm), and low available S (3 ppm). The five fertilizer treatments (N, P2O5, K2O, and S) were: 1) 29-46-30 kg/ha, 2) 90-46-30, 3) 90-46-30-14, 4) 120-46-30, 5) 120-46-30-21.
