Paper presents the experimental results obtained by applying a new foliar fertilizer with organic substances and the influence of the foliar fertilization on the phosphorus content in maize plant. Research was carried out in the green house by INCDPAPM-ICPA Bucharest (2010) and the soil from experiment was Vermic Chernozems. The experiment was organized in Mitscherlich pots with 20 kg of soil. The tested inbred maize line from experience was: PR38A24. According to the methodology of testing for each variant of treatment a number of three replicates were provided. All the variants received soil fertilization with 50 mg N/kg soil, 50 mg P 2 O 5 /kg soil and 50 mg K 2 O/kg soil, excepting the control unfertilized in soil. In these conditions, the application of new foliar fertilizer assured positive increases of phosphorus content in dry matter of maize plant as compared to controls.
