Application Technology in the use of Correctives in Corn Culture
Journal of Experimental Agriculture International,
Corn is one of the most cultivated cereals in the world and is used for various purposes and its production is linked to its economic importance, requiring the use of means and methods that enable the increase of its production and one of them is the correction of the ground. The objective of this work is to carry out a brief literature review on the application technology in the use of correctives in the corn crop, highlighting the benefits of its use and the need for its use in the crop. The present study was developed based on a literature review and relevant research on the technology of application of correctives in corn crop, highlighting the benefits of its use and the need for its use in corn crop. Agriculture went through a long development, improving its production system and application technology came with one of the alternatives helping to maintain and improve soil quality, enabling the application of correctives in the soil with greater efficiency. The need for soil correction has to do with the relationship between the plant and the soil, highlighting the acidity, which in many cases is a problem for the cultivation of crops. The use of correctives to correct soil acidity brings many benefits to the physical and chemical characteristics of the soil, reduces fertilizer losses caused by leaching, provides calcium and magnesium to the soil adjusting the soil profile so that plants can benefit from available nutrients. Thus, application technology is essential for the corn crop and for the entire production system, even more in the application of correctives, as acidity is one of the causes of yield limitations. Thus, application technology favors soil correction, ensuring the benefits provided by proper application, becoming a means of increasing crop productivity and corn as well, due to the various productive aspects provided by the correct application in the soil.
