Sunflower - Fertilization

Sunflower does not require as high soil fertility as other crops like maize or wheat in order to produce satisfactory yields. However, the crop has been shown to respond to fertilizer. Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur and boron have been found to be important in Zambia. In the northern parts of the country, where soil acidity is a problem, liming is recommended at between 500 and 2000 kg/ha depending on the critical pH level and soil type. Gener
