Control of manganese deficiency in sugar beet by placement of a manganated compound fertilizer






Journal of Agricultural Science in Finland 58(5): 215-220

Control of manganese deficiency in sugar beet by placement of a manganated compound fertilizer

In Finland, manganese deficiency in sugar beet has traditionally been controlled by spraying the foliage with manganese sulphate. According to field experiments, palcement of an acid compound fertilizer seems to provide a new possibility of controlling manganese deficiency of sugar beet in heavily limed fields. In 1-year experiemnts carried out in 1984-1985 in seven fields which showed slight symptoms of manganese deficiency, conversion from top dressing to the placementtechnique alone increased the availability of soil manganese to sugar beet. The availability was, however, best safeguarded only when manganese (0.7%) was added to acid compound fertilizer and applied by the placement technique. Placement of manganese (25-30 kg/ha MnSO4; Mn 26%) together with acid compound fertilizer increased the root yield by 2.0 tons (+7%) per hectare in average compared to placement of manganese-free compound fertilizer. The new method of application did not have a significant effect on the quality of sugar beet.
