Interim Evaluation of Phosphogypsum as an Ameliorant for Soil Acidity in Sugarcane

  title={Interim Evaluation of Phosphogypsum as an Ameliorant for Soil Acidity in Sugarcane},
  author={Heike Meyer and Edwin L. Turner and Martin V. Fey},
Results are reported of a 3x3x3 factorial trial in which phosphogypsum (PG), dolomitic limestone (DL) and single superphosphate (SS)were applied to sugarcane. The trial was situated on a Kranskop form soil with a moderately toxic aluminium (AI) content. Based on the combined yield responses from the plant and first ratoon crops, treatments with SS were superior to those with PG, and little response was obtained from DL. The high P in-furrow treatment (90 kg P/ha) gave a highly significant… CONTINUE READING
