Characteristic of best treatmentAlthough the application rates of N & K2O were reduced by 30% , the total yield was kept at the control level
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
