Crop nutrition is also essential:
- Nitrogen and potassium are fundamental to achieving high marketable yields. Correct form of nitrogen is critical – ammonium can restrict growth and adversely affect quality.
- Phosphorus is important for early growth and root development of the establishing seedling.
- Calcium is needed to ensure vigorous leaf and root development and canopy growth.
- Magnesium is particularly important at flowering and then throughout fruiting to ensure good flower set and fruit fill.
- Unavailability of any micronutrient will restrict yield.
