Guidelines for the Use of Soil Amendments, Organic Manure and Chemical Fertilizers
Repeated application of any organic manure (1 kg per sq m) within the canopy at six months intervals 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 circular band around the plant within the canopy area, approximately
30 – 45 cm away from the main stem, and should be incorporated into the soil without disturbing the root system.
Always ensure soil is sufficiently moist after fertilizer application.
