H2O O2 Secondary nutrients K Ca Mg S Micro nutrients B 02/23/2020 Cu Fe Mn

Mo Zn 6 What are fertilizers? Simply put, fertilizers are plant food Why do we need them? Fertilizers replaces the nutrients that crops remove from the soil. Without the addition of fertilizers, crop yields would be significantly reduced. 02/23/2020 7 Fertilizer increases yield *If for some reason mineral fertilizer use were abruptly discontinued, The world food output would probably go down by 40% or more 02/23/2020

Structure 1. Relationship of soil and crop productivity 2. Cross section of the soil 3. How cultivation affects the soil 02/23/2020 12 Soil horizons are often visible Ideal soils do not exist, but all soils can be improved - It varies within the area, from field to field and even within the field - Soil color are indicators of the status of the soil A) Topsoil B) Subsoil A) Topsoil B) Subsoil C) Parent material

14 LESSON 3 Physical Properties of the Soil 02/23/2020 15 Outcomes 1. Name and define the physical attributes/ characteristic of soil 2. Explain how such physical attributes affects soil fertility 02/23/2020 16 Structure 1. Learn about soil color

2. Learn about soil texture 3. Learn about soil structure 4. Learn about soil composition 02/23/2020 17 Physical Properties Soil color are indicators of the status of the soil Light colors Generally low in fertility Dark colors Generally high in fertility Red Generally high in Iron

Blue greyish - There is waterlogging 02/23/2020 18 b. Soil structure Is a description of the Size Shape Arrangement .of blocks in the soil Soil structure is formed by the aggregation of Sand

Silt Clay And bound by soil organic compounds 02/23/2020 19 Different soil structures 02/23/2020 20 c. Soil Texture is a measure of soil particles Sand 2000 63mm, feels gritty Silt 63 2mm, feels smooth Clay <2mm, feels silky -The majority of soils are a mixture of the following; Sandy clay, Silty clay, Sandy loam, Sandy clay loam, Loamy sand .etc.

02/23/2020 21 Determination of textural class of soil 02/23/2020 22 Soil texture flow chart UK (feeling the soil with your fingers) 02/23/2020 23 Measuring the soil texture in the laboratories Into a clear jar, measuring cylinder or rain gauge place 8 to 10 cm of soil

The soil should be free of stones, sticks or other foreign matter and any clods should be broken up. Partially fill with water, cover the top and shake until the soil is suspended in the solution Leave overnight to settle 02/23/2020 24 Texture class is measured using this figure 02/23/2020

25 Soil texture influences fertilizer use Freely draining soils Nutrients may move with the water flow through the soil Sandy soils May have lower organic matter levels and hence lower fertility Clay soils May have higher organic matter levels and water nutrient holding capacity *Fertilizer applications need to be adjusted to suit soil types

02/23/2020 26 Soil composition Sand Chemically inactive Silt Chemically inactive Clay Chemically active Colloids Very fine clay particles < 0.1mm Can be mineral or organic Chemically active Low colloid soil

Nutrient uptake pathways 4. pH level and nutrient availability 02/23/2020 30 Ions are charged nutrient elements - negatively charged are Cations - positively charged are Anions Ammonium Nitrogen increases soil acidity When nutrients are taken up by plants roots, an ion exchange takes place Urea and ammonium nitrogen are converted to nitrate for uptake by the plants The release of H+ ions increases the acidity of the soil + H

H++ Urea 02/23/2020 NO3NH4+ Ammonium NO3Nitrate 31 Nitrate nitrogen does not increase soil acidity With Anions (NO3) is directly supplied Hydroxyl ions (OH) is displaced from the roots Uptake of nitrate releases OH- ions which do not increase soil acidity

to apply. Toxicity can occur when minerals exist in a form that becomes harmful to plants. Worms (parasites) live in every persons intestines, no matter how clean and healthy a person is. 02/23/2020 67 IRON TOXICITY Iron is naturally present in the soil and plants need iron. But iron can be harmful in permanently-flooded fields. tiny brown spots on the lower leaves starting from the tip or orange-yellow to brown leaves IRRI WHAT TO DO? Use intermittent irrigation and avoid

continuous flooding in poorly-drained soils, balance fertilizers and perform dry tillage after harvest to increase iron oxidation during the fallow period. 02/23/2020 68 02/23/2020 69 Lets review! Nitrogen Phosphorus Potassium Sulfur rip g in er w

He was only getting 80 100 cavans per hectare with this new hybrid 1 hectare of rice field He applies 2 bags 14-14-14 and 2 bags Urea his usual practice Application at basal and before panicle initiation For other cultural practice eg, irrigation, weed and pest control etc., he followed the recommendations His question: Why is my yield still low? Should I apply more fertilizers?
