Significant effect shown for the application of newly developed salt resistant fertilizer on winter wheat
According to the of CAS STS Network Service project inR ＆ D of fertilizers specially for Costal Saline And Alkaline Land and the effect of SHIKEFENGstable fertilizer demonstration，our institute and SHIKEFENG limited chemical company co-organized a field demonstration on winter wheat fertilization in Xiajin county, Dezhou City，Shandong Province on 22 May.
The soil in Xiajin is typical saline and alkaline soils, characterized as alkaline, cool, hardened, impervious and poor with low productivity. Our institute has developed salt and alkali resistant and long-acting (as long as 120 days)fertilizers. The new fertilizer improves soil structure and permeability, reduces the harm effect of alkali, helps to hold moisture, fertility and increase seedling survival. The fertilizer enhance the crop yield
and income of the farmers. So the fertilizer is warmly welcomed by the farmers
