Abstract

Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium contents of field vegetables – Recent data for fertilizer recommendations and nutrient balances.

When calculating fertiliser recommendations and nutrient balances, growers and advisers usually do not do site specific measurements but use data from look up tables. Data given by older literature sources, however, do not take into account today’s cropping practices. Therefore a databank on nutrient contents of total yields, marketable yields and harvest residues of 22 field vegetable crops is presented. This databank was compiled using results from topical field experiments and from recent literature.
