Understanding crop nutrition – Guide for Australian mango growers
Having the right fertiliser program is critical for efficient tree growth, fruit yield and importantly fruit quality. It is important you get both the quantity and timing right.
The objective of your fertiliser program is to maintain the soil with adequate nutrition to supply the needs of the trees as they grow throughout the season. To do this effectively requires an understanding of your orchards characteristics (e.g. soil types within the orchard) and an understanding of crop growth stages.
