Comparison of effectiveness of animal slurry nitrogen and commercial fertilizer nitrogen i. influence on yield and chemical composition of potato tubers and residual effect on spring barley



Comparison of effectiveness of animal slurry nitrogen and commercial fertilizer nitrogen i. influence on yield and chemical composition of potato tubers and residual effect on spring barley



Pamietnik Pulawski (82): 229-240



Over the period 1976-1979 a field experiment was conducted on the soil of a good rye complex, to compare the effectiveness of swine slurry nitrogen with that of commercial fertilizer nitrogen. The slurry was applied in autumn or in spring. The phosphorus and potassium fertilizers were applied in autumn, and the nitrogen fertilizers in spring, before planting of potatoes. Tuber yield increase in the treatments with similar N rates was: 20,6% for the commercial fertilizers and 27,7% or 48,3% for the swine slurry applied in autumn and in spring respectively, as compared with the control (without nitrogen). Similar increases were found in the dry weight of tubers. Application of the commercial N fertilizers resulted in a decrease of starch content of the tubers; on the other hand only a slight decrease of starch was found under autumn, and no decrease under spring application of slurry. Fertilization increased the yield of crude protein by 82 to 268 kg/ha and that of true protein by 41 to 158 kg/ha. The highest yields of crude protein were obtained in the treatments with autumn application, and the lowest n the treatments with spring application of slurry. The yield of true protein was not influenced by the time of slurry application, and was much lower under mineral fertilizers. The swine slurry, as compared with the commercial fertilizers, caused an increase of K content of the potato tubers. The residual effect of slurry on the grain yield and the protein content of grain of spring barley was slightly weaker than that of mineral fertilizers.
