Assessment of the optimum soil nutrient composition for fine carrots growing under Belgian farming conditions

Assessment of the optimum soil nutrient composition for fine carrots growing under Belgian farming conditions

Pedologie 36(1): 17-31

Physical crop and yield parameters were monitored on a large number of plots to evaluate the suitability of 8 Belgium soils for a fine carrots crop. The chemical composition of the topsoil was also monitored for 4 consecutive growing seasons. The data monitored were subjected to factor analysis to define the optimum soil nutrient conditions for assuring good quality and yield of carrots. Nutrient recommendations have been established for sandy silt loam, light sandy loam and sandy soils.
