We continue with purple garlic nutrition tasks. The first time we performed a nutrition task was before sowing and now, once all of the garlic have germinated, we spread the second dose. At this time we have to mention that it is a large dose: 450kg/ha of fertilizer.
It is Duranit-46 of Fertinagro company and its composition is:
- Net Nitrogen 20.5%
- 6% Urea
- 14.5% Ammonia
- Sulfur 39%
- Calcium 5%
- Magnesium 2%
The morning began bad because it rained so we had to cover our trailers with canvas... at the end, we could finish our task without problems. It was funny to see as our partners Aquilino y Jesús filled the spreader manually using an ancient tool called "media fanega" while we did the same job with our endless belt which was fixed in our trailer.
Regarding the machinery used, we are not going to say anything about that again because we have spoken about that many times. Simply, we would like to highlight Amazone spreaders worked very fine one more time because the fertilizer was distributed on soil perfectly as you can see in our pictures.
