ARCHIVE: Fertiliser Manual (RB209)

Fruit, Vines and Hops

For each crop, recommendations for nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5), potash (K2O) and magnesium (MgO) are in kg/ha. Recommendations are given for the rate and timing of fertiliser application.

The following recommendations are based on the nutrient requirements of the crop being grown, making allowance for the nutrients already in the soil. Section 3 gives instructions on how to use the tables, including assessment of the SNS Index.

More background on the principles underlying the recommendations is given in Section 1.
