Adding Manure & Fertilizer


Balanced Fertilizer Use:

Wheat crop needs balanced use of chemical fertilizer, which is applied at the time of sowing and it must be completed up-to first and/or second irrigation. Full dose of phosphorous should be given at the time of sowing and nitrogen should be applied in split doses i.e. half at the time of sowing and half at first or second irrigation. But, the fertilizer dose must be selected after soil test with regard to its quality and crop needs. Wheat requires adequate amount of nitrogen and phosphorous during early growth period for vigorous growth that ultimately enhance crop yield.

Types of Fertilizers

Fertilizer refers to any compound that contains one or more chemical elements, organic or inorganic, natural or synthetic, that is placed on or incorporated into the soil or applied to directly onto plants to achieve normal growth. The main supply sources of plant nutrients include organic manures, plant residues, biological nitrogen fixation and commercial inorganic fertilizers.


The chemical fertilizers can be broadly classified into: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium fertilizers. A straight fertilizer contains only one of the nutrients. A compound fertilizer contains two or more nutrients. A complex fertilizer that is formed by mixing ingredients that react chemically, as opposed to a mechanical mixture of two or more fertilizers. A low analysis fertilizer product contains a low percentage of nutrients, usually 30 per cent or less and a high analysis fertilizer contains more than 30 per cent.
