Comparative efficacy of two methods of fertiliser placement in mature oil palm and cocoa plantings


Comparative efficacy of two methods of fertiliser placement in mature oil palm and cocoa plantings



Planter 78(913): 179-193



ISSN/ISBN: 0126-575X

In oil palm, rubber and cocoa plantations, fertilizers are normally surface applied. Under certain conditions, some of the applied fertilizers may be lost due to volatilization, leaching, surface runoff and soil erosion. As fertilizer costs can account for up to 30% of total production costs, fertilizer efficiency must be maximized to optimize yields and profit.
