Characteristic of best treatmentAlthough the application rates of N was reduced by 30% , the total yield was increased by 10%
ConclusionsThis experiment clearly showed that the high efficiency use of Multicote Agri (applied as pre planting) allows to reduce significantly the nutrients application rates without any reduction in crop yield
