Description of the measure

Comments on sustainability

Fertilization adjustments trough the fractioned application (at least three times) allow to save fertilizers, decrease the losses by evapotranspiration and runoff, then the GHG emissions may decrease. Economically it may suppose savings, although there is a need of more time for these labors. The fertilizers application may be designed based on the expected weather, avoiding rainy periods
