Optimum Recommendation on Fertilization Application

Fertilization of durian in Southern Mindanao was provisional and only based on experiences of growers. Durian is heavily fertilized by many commercial growers but there were no clear plant and soil testing methods used as basis for fertilization. To improve the yield and quality of fresh durian in Southern Mindanao, a fertilization guide was developed based on the optimum nutrient standards. The validated fertilizer rate recommendation is 388-80-465 kilograms NPK per hectare in 3-split application.
