Soil Application

The most common soil application method used mainly for open field crops is fertilizer broadcast.


It is a method by which the fertilizers are applied on the surface across an entire field. Often high capacity spreaders are used to spin dry fertilizer on the soil surface. Broadcast fertilization can be improved by incorporating fertilizer through plowing or disking.  The advantages of the soil application methods are that they are relatively fast and economical.


Broadcasting of fertilizers is of two types:

1. Basal application: Broadcasting at sowing or planting: The main benefits of broadcasting fertilizers at sowing time are to uniformly distribute the fertilizer over the field, and to mix it with soil.
2. Top dressing: It is the broadcasting of fertilizers particularly nitrogenous fertilizers in closely sown crops like paddy and wheat, with the objective of supplying nitrogen in readily available form to growing plants.
