Give 325: 250: 250 gm of nitrogen, phosphorus or potash to the pomegranate plant for the first time, while watering. After flowering, the remaining amount of nitrogen should be given in two-three steps. Also, 200 gm of magnesium sulphate should be given during the blooming phase. Give 500 g of DAP and 100 g of MOP to lemon-sized fruit. When the fruit turns guava-shaped, 200 gm 19:19 and 100 gm MOP should be given.
