Soyabean - Fertilization

Although fairly substantial amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium are removed from the soil by soybean, the crop does not generally respond to direct fertilization except when soil fertility is low. Indirect fertilization is more effective. If a previous crop of maize or wheat receives adequate amounts of fertilizer, little or no fertilizer need to be applied to the following soybean crop. If direct fertilizer application is necessary compound "D" at the rate of 33 kg/ha should be basal dressed either broadcast, harrowed in before planting or banded beside and below the rows.
