Watermelon phenological phases and their specific nutrition requirements

Suggested fertigation schedule of major nutrients for field-grown watermelons at expected yield of 35-45 MT/ha. This fertigation regime leans on a pre-plant base dressing of: N= 40 kg/ha; P2O5= 36 kg/ha; K2O= 40 kg/ha. Ref.: Vegetable Crop Handbook for Southeastern United States, 2011
