Guidelines for the Use of Soil Amendments, Organic Manure and Chemical Fertilizers

  • Lime application (1-2 t/ha) should be done two weeks before planting and incorporated well in to soil.
  • Lime and chemical fertilizers should not be applied together.
  • Application of any organic manures at the rate of 10t/ha is beneficial.
  • Integrated use of organic manure and chemical fertilizer is more beneficial than using either type in isolation.
  • Basal fertilizer should be applied and incorporated into the soil at least 1 – 2 days before planting.
  • Subsequent fertilizer applications should be done in a circle around the plant and incorporated into soil.
  • Always ensure soil is sufficiently moist after fertilizer application.
