Rapeseed fertilization recommendations

Rapeseed has the most pronounced requirements for nitrogen (N), potassium (K), sulfur (S), boron (B) and is one of the major consumers of nutrients

One of the basic prerequisites for achieving stable and high yields of rapeseed is certainly timely and balanced nutrition with mineral fertilizers. For 1t of appropriate vegetative mass and grain rapeseed absorbs the most potassium (K) and nitrogen (N), while the absorption of phosphorus (P) is less.

The quantities of mineral fertilizers that we introduce should certainly be based on agrochemical analyses of the soil, planned yields, but also the needs of plants for certain nutrients, which will be the basis for their efficient and rational application.

Nitrogen (N) requirements are greatest in the stages from initial spring growth to flowering. In order to ensure the conditions for crop regeneration and further intensive development, the first fertilization should be done in the awakening phase of vegetation with 60-70% of the planned amount of nitrogen (N), while the second fertilization should be done with the remaining amount of nitrogen (N) at the moment of intense plant growth and stalk formation.

In the case of rapeseed, the importance of another macroelement should be highlighted, namely sulfur (S), which is key in the synthesis of oil and chlorophyll, as well as in the tolerance of plants to stressful conditions. The product portfolio of Elixir Zorka includes formulations that meet the sulfur (S) needs of rapeseed.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for the rapeseed crop

The product NPK 8:15:15 + 3% Ca + 9% S is used in the fertilization of a large number of plant species due to the uniform ratio of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). It is characterized by good solubility and accessibility of phosphorus (P) during the vegetation period

The product NPK 6:12:24 + 6% S in terms of its ratio of nutrients represents a well-balanced formulation for achieving high and stable yields of all cultivated plants that have an increased need for potassium (K)

AmoSulfan belongs to the category of nitrogen fertilizers. It is extremely suitable for feeding all types of plants. The use of AmoSulfan significantly improves the availability and uptake of phosphorus on alkaline and neutral soils

Spring fertilization of rapeseed implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of rapeseed yield.

Proizvodi Elixir Group

Amosulfan 20% N + 24% S

AmoSulfan contains nitrogen in ammoniacal form.

This form of nitrogen binds more easily and is more difficult to wash out from the soil profile, which makes it available to plants for a longer period of time. Sulfur, as the main macroelement, directly affects the increase in the quality of cereal grains, because it participates in protein synthesis.
