The effect of site conditions and nitrogen fertilization on the yield of crambe (Crambe abyssinica Hochst.)

Rostlinna Vyroba 43(3): 143-148

The effect of site conditions and nitrogen fertilization on the yield of crambe (Crambe abyssinica Hochst.)

In field trials in 1993-95 at Troubsko u Brna (degraded chernozem), Praha-Ruzyne (luvisol) and Lukavec u Pacova (cambisol), Crambe abyssinica was grown after cereals (spring barley or winter wheat) and given 0, 40 or 80 kg N/ha in equal split doses before sowing and at the start of flowering. 60 kg P2O5 and 60 kg K2O were also applied. Average seed yields were 1.38-1.95 t DM/ha and the growing season was 98-126 days.
