The results of using MikroCalc in the cultivation of maize

Due to the high yield potential, corn absorbs large amounts of nutrients and water from the soil, therefore its fertilization must be properly balanced. Proper fertilization, in addition to the direct impact on yield, also affects its quality and resistance to environmental stress (eg drought). In order to assess the impact of MikroCalc fertilizer on the reaction of maize plants to drought stress, we conducted an experience in the Farm in Wichrów.

Location of the experience:

Lower Silesia
Commune – Kostomłoty
City – Wichrów

Experience carried out:


Klasa gleby: 80% IIIa,b oraz 20% IVa,b
Powierzchnia: 24ha
pH: od 6,3 do 6,8
Zawartość K i P w glebie: K – wysoka i bardzo wysoka, P – bardzo wysoka
Przedplon: Buraki cukrowe (pod buraki w 2016 roku zastosowano obornik)
Siew kukurydzy: 24.04.2018, odmiana Palazzo
Nawożenie: w aplikatorze 150kg/ha ABS CORN NPK 6-14-29 + 2 MgO+ 10 SO3 + 0,1 B+ 0,1 Zn, mikrogranulat Physiostart 18 kg/ha

Experimental field:

Soil class: 80% IIIa, b and 20% IVa, b
Area: 24 ha
pH: from 6.3 to 6.8
K and P content in the soil: K – high and very high, P – very high
Forecrop: Sugar beet (for manure in 2016, manure was used)
Maize seeding: 24/04/2018, Palazzo variety
Fertilization: in applicator 150kg / ha ABS CORN NPK 6-14-29 + 2 MgO + 10 SO3 + 0,1 B + 0,1 Zn, Physiostart microgranulate 18 kg / ha

Comment of the President of the Holding:

In the first year of observation I can say that in the field where I applied MikroCalc in a dose of 300kg / ha, maize is greener and has much larger flasks than in the control field, despite the great drought that hit our region. In addition, I noticed that the ground is less compact compared to the control field.
