Increasing maize yields using a rational crop rotation

Productia Vegetala, Cereale si Plante Tehnice 37(3): 39-44

Increasing maize yields using a rational crop rotation

In field trials in 1982-84 at Albota-Arges, maize grown in monoculture or in 2-, 4- or 5-year rotations was given no fertilizers, 150 kg N + 100 kg P2O5/ha annually or 30 t FYM/ha in 1981 and 100 kg N + 80 kg P2O5 + 60 kg K2O/ha each year.
