Abstract


Oltenia, one of the most important agricultural regions of the country, is also one of the regions with extreme weather, which puts crop plants under stress.

That is why it is important that the crop plants have all the necessary nutrients from sowing. Starter microgranulate is a fertilizer that does this.

The use of a starter fertilizer for sowing corn is a wide spread practice in Europe. This type of fertilization shows good results for poor, sandy, acidic or basic soils, ensuring a good initial vigor and a better homogenity of the emergence.

In corn, there is a close correlation between the development of the root system and the growth of the foliar apparatus. As phosphorus stimulates root growth, it turns out that the easily assimilable phosphorus present in the soil in the first part of the vegetation can positively influence the production.he abstract in English (max.10 lines) focusing on the results of the research.
