Fertilizer Effects

The second important limitation to maize yield in this region is plant nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus. This tool examines the effectiveness of the application of nitrogen (N) fertilizer as an adaptation technology. The simulation of two N application levels are illustrated: one of 5 kg/ha (very low but what many farmers apply) and the other a moderate 85 kg/ha.
