DAP is the most widely used phosphate fertilizer among growers today. It is manufactured by reacting phosphoric acid and ammonia and contains two ammonia molecules.Chemical formula (NH4)2HPO4, IUPAC name diammonium hydrogen phosphate) is one of a series of water-soluble ammonium phosphate salts that can be produced when ammonia reacts with phosphoric acid.

 

 

FERTILIZERS IN OUR D.N.A

MAP

This fertilizer  has been an important phosphate fertilizer for growers around the world for many years.  It is completely water soluble, generally applied in the granular form and used in the formulation of suspension fertilizers. As a granular material, it mixes well and frequently serves as an ingredient in bulk-blended fertilizers. MAP, with its low pH levels, is best used for high-alkaline soils. It is an ideal starter fertilizer because MAP contains less ammonia-nitrogen than DAP, reducing potential seed damage.

Is also called Monoammonium Phosphate. It has an analysis of 11 units of nitrogen, 52 units of phosphate and of course 0 units of potash. It's a lower PH phosphate fertilizer, it's an excellent dry, it has a PH similar in about the 5's

 

 

 

UREA, also known as carbamide, is an organic compound with chemical formula CO(NH2)2.Urea: Urea, a white crystalline solid containing 46% nitrogen, is widely used in the agricultural industry as an animal feed additive and fertilizer. Commercially, fertilizer urea can be purchased as prills or as a granulated material. The prills formed a smaller and softer substance than other materials commonly used in fertilizer blends. Granules are larger, harder, and more resistant to moisture

SSP- SINGLE SUPER PHOSPHATE

 Single superphosphate is currently one of the most widely used fertilizers as an alternative source for phosphorus and sulfur throughout the world.Single superphosphate (SSP) was the first commercial mineral fertilizer, and it led to the development of the modern plant nutrient industry. This material was once the most commonly used fertilizer, but other phosphorus (P) fertilizers have largely replaced SSP because of its relatively low P content.


PHOSPHATE ROCK

Phosphate rock having plus 30% P2O5 content is suitable for SSP production. HPFL utilizes local rock at its plant.


CALCIUM SPERPHOSPHATE

 is also called single superphosphate, ordinary superphosphate and superphosphate, is a kind of superphosphate fertilizers. The key component of it is monocalcium phosphate (Ca(H2PO4)2•H2O), and the accessory component is calcium sulfate (CaSO4). Besides, there is also a small amount of free phosphoric acid, free sulfuric acid, dicalcium phosphate, ferric phosphate, aluminium phosphate and magnesium phosphate.

 

 

 

TRIPLE SUPERPHOSPHATE

Triple superphosphate (TSP) was one of the first high-analysis phosphorus (P) fertilizers that became widely used in the 20th century. Technically, it is known as calcium dihydrogen phosphate and as monocalcium phosphate, [Ca(H2PO4)2 .H2O]. Despite its excellent history as a P source, its use has declined as other P fertilizers have become more popular.

KCL POTASSIUM CHLORIDE

Potassium (K) fertilizers are commonly used to overcome plant deficiencies. Where soils cannot supply the amount of K required by crops, farmers must supplement this essential plant nutrient. Potash is a general term used to describe a variety of K-containing agricultural fertilizers. Potassium chloride (KCl), the most commonly used source, is also frequently referred to as muriate of potash, or MOP (muriate is the old name for any chloride-containing salt).Potassium is always present in minerals as a single-charged cation (K+).Potassium chloride (KCl), muriate of potash, is the most commonly used K fertilizer in the world providing crops with two nutrients,K and Cl, essential for both plants and animals.

YAARABELA AXAN

YaraBela AXAN (27% N + 9% SO3) is a uniform compound granular nitrogen and sulphur fertilizer with an N:S ratio of 7.5:1 suitable for use on all crops .It contains nitrogen as nitrate and ammonium. Plants require nitrogen in the ammonium and nitrate forms, . Nitrates are the most efficient form of nitrogen and are key to achieving optimum yields.YaraBela AXAN contains sulphur as calcium sulphate which is highly soluble and reaches plant roots quickly. Calcium sulphate, does not reduce the proportion of available nitrate in the formulation, unlike ammonium sulphate.

 

 

YAARALIVA

Is the calcium nitrate produced by Yara. Calcium nitrate is the only nitrogen fertilizer that provides calcium 100% soluble in water, being in the form readily assimilable by the plants next to the nitric nitrogen, which favors the absorption of cations, the development of the root system and the sanity of the plants. YaraLiva ™ Nitrabor ™ has a special coating of the granules and is enriched with boron. This coating gives an excellent physical quality and stability to the product, allowing its direct application in covering manually or mechanized. "Liva" is derived from Old Norse and means "Life"

 

 

MURIATE OF POSTASH

Potassium oxide or potash (formula K2O) is a compound of potassium and oxygen used mainly as a fertilizer. It is obtained from the combustion of plant material.

 

Muriate of Potash (MOP)   :

 

 

Potassium chloride (commonly referred to as Muriate of Potash or MOP) is the most common potassium source used in agriculture, accounting for about 95% of all potash fertilisers used worldwide.

composition : Potassium: 50%    Chloride: 46%


Sulfate of Potash (SOP)    :

Sulfate of Potash (SOP)

Potash fertilisers other than MOP are used where special crop or soil needs exist.Potassium sulfate (referred to as Sulfate of Potash or SOP) is used in crops that are sensitive to chloride or fertiliser burn like tobacco, pineapple or avocado, or where sulfur is deficient.

 composition :     Potassium: 41%              Sulfur: 18%

 

 


Potassium Magnesium Sulfate :

Potassium magnesium sulfate is an excellent source of three of the major nutrients - potassium, magnesium and sulfur.

It is used mainly for high value crops, where all three of these nutrients are required. It is also included in many 'complete' fertiliser products since it supplies several nutrients. While it is 99.7% water soluble, the rate of solubility is too slow for application in fertigation systems.

composition :   Potassium: 18%    Magnesium: 11%   Sulphur: 22%

 

 

 

 

 


Potassium Nitrate:

 

Potassium nitrate, sometimes also known as saltpetre, is often used in foliar sprays or fertigation because it is highly and quickly water soluble.Potassium nitrate has application as a potassium source for crops which are highly sensitive to chloride, such as tobacco.  It is an oxidising agent and should be handled and stored with care.

 composition :

Potassium: 38%
Nitrogen: 13%

NPK

Is the calcium nitrate produced by Yara. Calcium nitrate is the only nitrogen fertilizer that provides calcium 100% soluble in water, being in the form readily assimilable by the plants next to the nitric nitrogen, which favors the absorption of cations, the development of the root system and the sanity of the plants. YaraLiva ™ Nitrabor ™ has a special coating of the granules and is enriched with boron. This coating gives an excellent physical quality and stability to the product, allowing its direct application in covering manually or mechanized.
