The Government of Indonesia has been continuously pushing on various efforts to increase domestic maize production, especially through increasing the crop productivity per unit area which is still low, 2.4 ton/ha. In relation to the above mentioned facts, the improvement of maize cultivation i.e. through increasing and improving of fertilization at farmer's level has been done. In general, most of the maize crop in Indonesia has not been properly fertilized. The kind of fertilizer mostly used was N (urea), but timing and method of application were not properly practiced. Some farmers have used also P (TSP or SP-36), especially for acidic Podzolic soils that are poor in P. It is not common for farmers to use potassium (K-KC1) for their maize crop. Research activities on fertilization in Indonesia has produced technologies i.e. nutrients management, in order to increase the effectiveness of fertilizer and the use of nutrients by maize crop.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
