Positive Trend in Lentil Yield with Basis XC on MAP Fertiliser

[fa icon="calendar"] 13/08/18

This trial from Minlaton, South Australia was conducted to evaluate lentil production utilising Basis XC on MAP fertiliserBasis XC was applied on MAP at 2L/tonne ("treated"). Treated and untreated MAP was applied at planting with the seed at rates of 25, 50 and 75kg/ha.

At every rate, lentils grown in the blocks with Basis XC-treated MAP outyielded the control blocks, with yield increases ranging from 50-190 kg/ha.
