What are the common types of water-soluble fertilizers and what are their characteristics?
Water-soluble fertilizer is a new type of chemical fertilizer that can be completely dissolved in water developed in China in recent years. There are many types and a wide range of applications. So, what kinds of water-soluble fertilizers are there?
Types of water-soluble fertilizer
Water-soluble fertilizers can be divided into different types of nutrient elements: macro-element water-soluble fertilizers, medium-element water-soluble fertilizers, amino acid-containing water-soluble fertilizers, micro-element water-soluble fertilizers, humic acid-containing water-soluble fertilizers, and organic water-soluble fertilizers.
In the actual application process, a variety of water-soluble fertilizers are formulated to form a complete nutrient compound water-soluble fertilizer, and the integration of water and fertilizer projects can fully meet the needs of crop growth and production.
Characteristics of water-soluble fertilizer
1. Fully nutritious, fully water soluble, easy to absorb
Compared with traditional fertilizer varieties, water-soluble fertilizers have obvious advantages. It is a multi-element compound fertilizer that can be completely dissolved in water. It can be quickly dissolved in water and is easily absorbed by crops. The absorption and utilization rate is relatively high. The key is that it can realize the integration of water and fertilizer and be used in facility agriculture such as spray irrigation. Achieve the efficiency of saving water, fertilizer and labor.
2. Water and fertilizer saving, safe and efficient
Its main features are easy to use, low dosage, water and fertilizer saving, low cost, fast absorption, and high nutrient utilization rate. Because the application method of water-soluble fertilizer is irrigation with water, it makes the fertilization extremely uniform, which also lays a solid foundation for improving yield and quality. People can design the formula according to the characteristics of the nutrient requirements for crop growth. The scientific formula will not cause waste of fertilizer, making the fertilizer utilization rate almost 2-3 times that of conventional compound chemical fertilizers.
3. Quick-acting and controllable, convenient formula fertilization
Water-soluble fertilizer is a quick-acting fertilizer, which allows growers to see the effect and performance of the fertilizer quickly, and can adjust the fertilizer formula according to the growth and growth period of the crop.
4. Convenient application, time-saving and labor-saving
The application method of water-soluble fertilizer is very simple. It can be fertilized with irrigation water including sprinkler irrigation, drip irrigation and other methods. It saves water and fertilizer while also saving labor. This is why water-soluble fertilizers are used today when labor costs are increasing. The benefits are obvious.
