Firstly plow the land deep enough for the plant roots to penetrate deep into the ground making it drought resistant.
For the Super Napier grass, fertilization should be done when the new leaves emerge.
That is after 20 days of planting the stems, we can give fertilizer to our plants.
The best method for obtaining maximum yields from the Super Napier is to broadcast the fertilizer all over the surface of the soil but closer to the stems.
Broadcasting is the easy means to apply the fertilizer. Also it helps in uniform fertilizer distribution to all the plants.
Cattle Manure is the best fertilizer for the Super Napier Grass or any other organic manure rich in NPK can be used as well.
Nitrogen in the manure causes leaf growth and the formation of stems and branches. Phosphorus promotes the development of healthy roots.
We recommend 2 tons of organic fertilizer per acre or apply four bags of 14-14-14 fertilizer.
After completing the fertilization, irrigate the Super Napier plants thoroughly.
Continue to feed every 2 to 4 months during the growing season so that maximum yield can be achieved from the Super Napier.
