Maize is a cereal of high thermal requirements. It has low watering requirements as compared to other cereals, though. In Poland it is mainly cultivated for silage and grains. Its roots run deep and are well-developed, which helps the plant to get through periods of water deficiency. The plant requires most water during its blossoming period.
Maize requires higher temperatures and moist soil, particularly in its initial growth period. Hence, it is necessary to treat seeds with the nanogro forte superstrat growth stimulant as it enables fast germination, even despite cool and dry weathers.
With 1 tonne of grain it absorbs: 30 kg of nitrogen (N), 12 kg of phosphorus (P2O5), 30 kg of potassium (K2O), 10 kg of calcium (CaO), 10 kg of magnesium (MgO), 4 kg of sulphur (S), or 10 kg when calculated in SO 3, 11 g of boron (B), 14 g of copper (Cu), 110 g of manganese (Mn), 0.9 g of molybdenum (Mo), and 85 g of zinc (Zn).
