Properties of solid and liquid fertilizers
Each fertilizer has characteristic properties that make it different from all others.
Fertilizers are classified into two main groups: Solid fertilizers and liquid fertilizers.
In this section you will find the characteristics of each group.
Calculations for the use of fertilizer solutions
we present some examples to show how fertilizer dosage is calculated whenever recommendations are available. All recommendations should be carefully studied and evaluated. Since some recommendations are in terms of pure P and K instead of the oxides.
Determining fertilizer requirements
The amount of fertilizer required depends foremost on the total quantity of nutrients removed by the crop from the soil or substrate. In order to achieve optimum yields, each crop should have at its disposal the pre- determined amount of nutrients. These conform the basis of all fertilizer recommendations.
