Sugar beet fertilization recommendations

It belongs to plants with increased potassium requirements and is a large consumer of nutrients, while potassium (K) plays a significant role in increasing sugar content and tolerance to stressful conditions

The decision on the production of sugar beet should be planned several years in advance, and the preparations for sowing should start already during the summer months.

Along with tilling the soil in the autumn, we also carry out basic fertilization of the crops, and the selection and amount of application of individual fertilizers is best done on the basis of agrochemical analyses of the soil. During the basic tillage of the soil in the autumn, all necessary amounts of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are introduced, while nitrogen (N) fertilizers are mostly introduced in the spring with pre-sowing soil preparation.

Nitrogen (N) is important for the normal growth and development of plants, but the application of larger quantities leads to excessive growing of the green leaf mass, which results in a decrease in sugar beet digestion. In practice, various NPK formulations with an increased proportion of potassium (K) or PK formulations with a certain ratio of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are used.

The production range of Elixir Zorka contains a range of different fertilizer formulations that can easily be adapted to the high demands of sugar beet production.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for the sugar beet crop

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

NutriBOOST NP 10:45 + 5% S + 1% Zn is a new generation microgranulated fertilizer with a special additive that protects phosphorus (P) from blocking in the soil, preventing its reaction with other elements such as Ca, Al and Fe

NutriBOOST NP 10:45

By applying NutriBOOST fertilizer, phosphorus is protected.

Phosphorus is very important for fertilization processes in plants as well as for good rooting and strengthening of the root system. Nitrogen (N), which is used independently of other macroelements in the corn crop, should include formulations with a higher proportion of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in the production technology.
