Q.What Does Maize Need For Maximum Yield
I have learnt that some farmers yield 4tonns per acre. I planted soya and it had yellowish leaves and didn’t yield well. I want to add ‘CAN’ to the soil before planting maize. Is that OK? And if so, how should I apply it? a 50kg bag should cover what area (or, about 10kg should cover what area)? When planting the maize I have a fertilizer [yaramila serial]. Do I apply both at once (or on the same season)?
