ABSTRACT Essential plant nutrients are mainly applied to soil and plant foliage for achieving maximum economic yields. Soil application method is more common and most effective for nutrients, which required in higher amounts. However, under certain circumstances, foliar fertilization is more economic and effective. Foliar symptoms, soil and plant tissue tests, and crop growth responses are principal nutrient disorder diagnostic techniques. Soil applications of fertilizers are mainly done on the… Expand

Phosphorus Nutrient Management through Synchronization of Application Methods and Rates in Wheat and Maize Crops
TLDR
Field trials showed that foliar spray of 144 mM KH2PO4 at knee height + tasseling and stem elongation + boot stages in wheat and maize significantly enhanced grains yield and phosphorus use efficiency (PUE) where P was applied as banding or broadcast at the time of sowing. Expand

Evaluation of Maize Growth Following Early Season Foliar P Supply of Various Fertilizer Formulations and in Relation to Nutritional Status
TLDR
It is concluded that foliar P fertilization during juvenile development does not increase yield but might nevertheless be a useful remedy for short-term P deficits. Expand
Leaf nutrients content of tomato and incidence of insect pests and diseases following two foliar applications
TLDR
Herbagreen treated plants produced fruit yield comparable to the conventional NPK fertilizer and registered lower disease incidence and severity as well as lower insect pest populations possibly due to its silicon content. Expand

Soybean Yield and Nutrient Composition as Affected by Early Season Foliar Fertilization
TLDR
Multivariate analyses across sites showed that 27% of the variation in yield response was explained by a combination of N, P, and K availability, vegetative growth, and rainfall, and positive yield responses tended to occur when soil or weather conditions reduced plant growth and nutrient availability.
