Hello can you please clarify the values are in what unit gms/plant or else.
Also, what does 'do' relates to the figure above or the figure on the left side.

Dear Sir,

The values given here are requirements in grams per plant.

The term 'do' is removed from this post to clear your doubt.

Thank you,

A.Vishnu Sankar

Considering Establishment stage 1 and my planting to be done on 15th Feb 2014, how and on what date should I apply the above recommended fertilizers till the 60th day.

Dear Friend,

The given chart is a NPK target chart that is entirely different from the 'fertilizer quantity cum schedule chart' usually recommended by Agri.Dept, Agri. Universities and Fertilizer manufacturers.
Please read the chart carefully. I have not recommended any variety or quantity of fertilizers that are to be applied within a given age. In practical it is highly impossible to apply the fertilizers as prescribed by the agencies. There are varied reasons like unavailability of recommended fertilizers, cost of them when cheaper ones with the same NPK value are available, scarcity of manpower to apply them, difficulty to provide adequate irrigation after fertilizer application Etc.
In the chart:
1. Age is given as number of days. 2. FERTILIZER REQUIREMENTS ARE GIVEN AS TARGETS ONLY.
3. LEARN TO CALCULATE NPK REQUIREMENT IN THE FOLLOWING LINKS:

http://agrowmania.blogspot.in/2009/06/common-fertilizers-and-their-nutrient.html

4. SINCE THE FIGURES GIVEN IN THE CHART ARE TARGETS, DO NOT APPLY THE GIVEN QUANTITY AT THE GIVEN AGE.
5. TO PUT IT SIMPLY, APPLY WHATEVER FERTILIZER THAT ARE AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET THAT YOU FINDS THEM AS ECONOMICAL (FALLS WITHIN YOUR BUDGET)THE NPK TARGET SHOULD BE ACHIEVED WITHIN THAT AGE.
6. AS A FARMER I AM VERY WELL SAY THAT IT IS IMPRACTICAL TO ADHERE TO ANY DATE SCHEDULE FOR FERTILIZER APPLICATION. SO APPLY THE NUTRIENTS ON WHATEVER DATE THAT YOU FIND AS CONVENIENT BUT TRY TO ACHIEVE THE GIVEN NPK CHART.

Thank you,
A.Vishnu Sankar.
