This trial from Minlaton, South Australia was conducted to evaluate lentil production utilising Basis XC on MAP fertiliser. Basis 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.
The highest yield increase with Basis XC (190kg/ha) was observed with the lowest rate of MAP (25kg/ha). The least significant difference (LSD) for the trial was 0.15.
