Nutrient balances and field experimental studies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


When analysing the NPK balances of Hungarian agriculture, it can be seen that the surplus appearing in the nutrient balance-sheet is a consequence of intensive fertilization in the past. Some important factors related to liming and fertilization are discussed. In conclusion, it is stated that the need for mineral fertiliser in Hungarian agriculture could be minimized, having the same or even higher yield levels in the near future and applying about 20-30% less NPK fertilizers based on a more sound recommendation. -from Author
