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.

Pulse crop growers know that phosphorus mineralization is key for optimum crop performance. By using Foundation LM, they can increase the availability of phosphorus in the soil to build the best foundation for their crop. 

Rhizobia use phosphorus to fix atmospheric nitrogen as ammonium nitrate (NH4). If phosphorus is being tied up or not being cycled as fast as the rhizobia need it, they can't work at an optimum level and they won't have the nodulation they should have.
