LUBOFOS®

CORN

EC FERTILIZER • GRANULATED • TYPE B.1.1.
NPK (Ca, S) 5-10-21-(2-18,5) with BORON (B) 0,09, ZINC (Zn) 0,20

  • recommended especially for maize fertilization
  • ensures high yields of grains, CCM, ensilage, green feeder
  • satisfies specific nutritional demand of maize for phosphorus and zinc – the components which determine high yields
  • it is also recommended for cultivation of pea, onion and flax
  • due to zinc and boron content, it is also recommended for cultivation of fruit and vegetables
  • very good spreading properties

Usage

The best effectiveness is achieved when Lubofos® Corn is applied before sowing and mixed with the soil to the depth of 10-15 cm during performance of pre-sowing cultivation treatments. This fertilizer may also be used in the start dose, which means that it can be sown together with maize seeds. The only condition of applying the start fertilizing is to have a typical sowing machine for simultaneous maize seeds and fertilizer spreading. In fruit farming, fertilization should be performed after fruit picking. In vegetable cultivations, this fertilizer should be sown during station preparing treatment.



Dosage [kg/ha]

in maize cultivation for grains and CCM*

YIELDS LEVEL AVAILABLE PHOSPHORUS AND POTASSIUM LEVEL IN SOIL**
low medium high very high***
medium (5 t/ha) 500-600 400-400 100-200 50-100
high (8 t/ha) 650-750 550-650 250-350 100-200

* In maize cultivation for ensilage, the dose of fertilizer applied to a station with average and low soil content, shall be
increased by 50 kg/ha.
** In a situation where both compounds belong to different composition classes, the dose of fertilizer is determined
for the component in the lower class of the two.
*** In good weather conditions, the yield may be higher than has been assumed.
