Trial confirms the efficiency of Multicote Agri for carrot fertilization

A considerable reduction of 20% the N fertilizer applied was achieved

Crop/cultivar

Carrot (open field)
Country / location Israel / Kibbutz Nirim / January 2006 – June 2006
Objectives The effect of Haifa coated N products in varies coated/uncoated quantities, on open field carrot’s total yield
Haifa product tested  Multicote Agri 43-0-0 (70-0-0% coated; 3-4M release longevity)
Application method Base Dressing
Tested treatments Control:
200 kg/ha of N, as “Uran” – liquid fertilizer 32-0-0

Multicote Agri I
200 kg/ha of Multicote Agri 43-0-0 (70-0-0% coated; 3-4M
(100% of the commercial N application)

Multicote Agri II
160 kg/ha of Multicote Agri 43-0-0 (70-0-0% coated; 3-4M
(80% of the commercial N application)

Multicote Agri III
120 kg/ha of Multicote Agri 43-0-0 (70-0-0% coated; 3-4M
(60% of the commercial N application)

Conclusions

Multicote Agri is much more efficient and effective than current liquid fertilizer applied, resulted in 6 mT / ha, with a considerable reduction of 20% of the N fertilizer applied
A 40% reduction yielded 3 mT / ha. Both Multicote Agri treatments (80%, 60% of the grower’s practice) are more economically profitable
