Fertilisers have the potential to transform the soil dramatically. This industry comprises of different kinds of fertilisers. Here, we will discuss in detail the different types and their qualities. Let’s start!!
Types of Fertilisers
Urea is available to the public in a crystalline, organic, and white form. It is hygroscopic in nature and is a highly concentrated nitrogenous fertilizer which makes it difficult to apply. It is found in granular or pellet form, coated with a non-hygroscopic inert material. It is subject to quick leaching because of being highly soluble in water. Nevertheless, it produces immediate results and is quick-acting. Urea can be used during sowing or as a top-dressing, but one should ensure that it doesn’t come into contact with the seed.
Single Superphosphate (SSP) is widely known as normal superphosphate or ordinary superphosphate. It is a universal phosphoric fertiliser that can be used in all kinds of soil and crops. This fertiliser can be applied as a basal fertiliser along with other chemicals as well as organic fertilisers. SSP has a remarkable impact on the growth of plants. Other than this, it also helps in maintaining soil health and provides protection against pests.
Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) is a widely used phosphorus fertiliser that can easily dissolve in soil. Plant-available phosphate and ammonium is released by this fertiliser. Due to its physical features and high nutrient content, this fertiliser is quite popular in farming as well as other industries.
MURIATE OF POTASH
MOP is also referred to as potassium chloride and has about 60% potash. Potash is essential for plant growth and helps in maintaining its quality. It plays an integral role in the production of sugars and proteins. MOP protects against drought by retaining the water content of the plant. It is beneficial for photosynthesis as it aids in keeping the vigour and shape of leaves intact. It can be valuable for soils that are low in chloride. With over 55 million tonnes being sold and used annually, it remains one of the most commercial fertilisers in the potash family.
NPK fertiliser contains three macro-nutrients, which are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). These three primary nutrients are essential for plant growth. To meet global food demand and to ensure the growth of healthy crops, the agriculture industry is heavily dependent on using NPK.
Magnesium Sulfate fertilizer contains 18 percent of MgO, 9.8 percent of water-soluble calcium, and 12% of water-soluble sulfur. Magnesium Sulfate offered is of agriculture fertilizer grade. Magnesium Sulfate correct any magnesium deficiency in the crop during yielding season.
Micro-nutrients constitute a perfect blend of mineral elements such as Zinc (Zn), Copper (Cu), Manganese (Mn), Iron (Fe), Boron (B), Molybdenum (Mo). The presence of mineral elements nurtures horticultural crops and also crops of cereals, pulses, oilseeds, spices, and plantation. Despite low demand, critical plant functions get delayed if micronutrients are unavailable, which results in plant deformations, lower yield, and diminished growth. Micro-nutrients play a significant role in balancing crop nutrition and growth.
Considered as one of the plant nutrients, zinc sulphate is the most widely used dry zinc material. It has a relatively water-soluble inorganic compound. In granular form, it is very effective. It can help in increasing the zinc levels of the soil.
Bentonite is mainly used as a feed additive in agriculture. It plays an important role in various application such as soil improver, stock feed and so on. Use of bentonite compensate the deficit of minerals in the organism as well as activating the metabolic processes,
Organic manures are natural substances used by farmers to give food (plant nutrients) to the crop plants. Organic manures increase the organic matter in the soil. The Organic matter, in turn, releases the plant-food. Although compare to other compounds, Organic manure is implemented in large quantities with low nutrient content.
Poultry manure contains all kinds of nutrients that are useful for a good crop production. It is considered as one of the best organic fertilisers. It is in use as the source of plant nutrition for centuries. Poultry manure consists of droppings.
