Plantain Study | Douala, Cameroon, July 2014

This AZOMITE® study showed improvement, most markedly in association with NPK, in overall growth.

Based on these observations, we recommend the use of AZOMITE® in the nursery for plantain plantlets at a dose of 5g/sachet containing a plant in combination with an NPK mineral fertilizer, notably 20-10-10 used in this experiment. AZOMITE® should be incorporated into the upper half of the substrate before transplanting the plantlets. Mineral fertilizer should be applied at a dose of 1g/plant from the 8th day after transplanting and then after every two weeks. Subsequent applications of AZOMITE® should follow the same sequence.
