Tomato production efficacy after treatment with Nousbo Controlled Release Fertilizer in India. Research summary



(Summary of the study of Nousbo CRF 21-6-10 effect on Tomato growth and yield performances in India)





Sustainable crop production became one of the world’s priorities for the last ten years as a result of the bigger concern for growing population. Tomato production must signify the ability to produce high yield and this can be attained by the proper use of fertilizer and modern fertilization technique. The use of controlled release fertilizer to satisfy the needs of the plant is one way of increasing the nutrient availability in its proper time for the growth and development of crops for better yield. Nousbo CRF 21-6-10 is a controlled release fertilizer with granules coated with polymer material that can control the rate, pattern and duration of plant nutrient release. This fertilizer is applied in order to maximize nutrition efficiency while minimizing nutrient losses.

CRF 21-6-10 was evaluated for its efficacy as one-time application product for complete nutrient supply for Tomato from March to July, 2019 in two locations. The first experimental site was at the Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (SHUATS) and the second was at Bhiskuri farmer’s village, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India. The fertilizers that were used for the conventional treatment plots were Urea, DAP, and MOP at the rate of 240kg/ha, 100kg/ha, and 100kg/ha, respectively. CRF 21-6-10 was applied once as basal through dibbling or per plant application at the rate of 3, 4 and 5g/plant. Growth parameters such as number of fruits/10plants, total weight of marketable and non-marketable fruits/10plants (kg), computed yield in tons per hectare were assessed. Results are summarized in the following table.





Yield and growth parameters of Tomato affected by various kinds of fertilizers in SHUATS and Bhiskuri Village







The data from SHUATS and Bhiskuri Village showed that number of tomato fruits was significantly influenced by the application rate of CRF. The highest values of number of fruits in SHUATS were 538 followed by 532 with the treatment CRF 5g and CRF 4g, respectively. The highest number of fruits in Bhiskuri Village were 260.00 and 242.33 with the treatment CRF 5g and CRF 4g, respectively. Results revealed that the highest weight of marketable fruits in SHUATS (62.64 kg) was produced by the plants grown on plots applied with CRF at the rate of 4 and 5g/plant. Same result was observed in Bhiskuri Village. CRF at the rates of 4g and 5g/plant had a relative advantage of 10.9% and 24.7% over conventional fertilizer treated plots in terms of computed yield per hectare in Bhiskuri Village.

(Yield quality of Tomato affected by various kinds of fertilizers)





Less amount of Nousbo CRF 21-6-10 per hectare lead to a greater supply of soil available nutrients than higher amount of conventional fertilizer per hectare, thus creating a favorable nutritional environment for intensive growth of Tomato. In addition, among the CRF 3, 4 and 5 g/plant treatment plots, CRF 5g/plant treatment showed the highest result in the average number of marketable Tomato fruits in both locations.
