Better effectiveness of maize fertilization with nitrogen through additional application of magnesium and sulphur
Summary. Studies were carried out in order to investigate the effect of maize fertilization with magnesium sulphate and elementary sulphur. No effect of fertilizer combinations was found on the quantitative status of plants after germination and before harvest, on grain moisture and on the assimilation surface area of a single plant and on the leaf area index (LAI). In result of maize fertilization with NPK and Mg plus S, a significant increase of maize yield was found in comparison with the object fertilized with NPK only. The fertilization of maize with magnesium and sulphur increased the mass pf 1000 seeds and the number of grains in one cob. Better nutrition of maize caused a significant increase of maize infestation by frit fly and European corn borer.
