The article discusses a study which investigated the effects of fertilizer placement and rate on transplanted areca palms grown on containers or a field nursery. Results of the study revealed that areca palms transplanted from containers grew best if the fertilizer is placed into the backfill. There was no consistently best fertilizer placement method for areca palms transplanted from a field nursery.

    A standard industry practice in the southwestern United States and in many other places when transplanting palms is to use sand as the sole backfill medium. The justification for using sand is that it promotes better root growth and establishment, and especially for unusually large specimens, it...

    Water yam (Dioscorea alata) is a staple crop for many of the poorest in the tropics. Yam tuber response to fertiliser application has been reported to be erratic. We hypothesised that this variable response could be due to the development of a suboptimal root system that would not allow the...

    Spinach is a leafy vegetable that requires a high N fertilization to have a satisfactory yield and quality, in part because it has poor nitrogen use efficiency (NUE). Therefore, there is a need to breed for cultivars with an excellent NUE. To this end the genetic diversity for NUE-related traits...
