Appropriate application of nitrogen
Specifying fertilizer quantity as well as time and place of its application are important factors in agricultural production. Inadequate application may deteriorate the quality of the crops and – in the end – impact the customers’ budgets.
Boosting the likelihood of success
Weather is notorious for refusing to cooperate with farmers. For example, if there is heavy rainfall during or after the application of fertilizer with nitrogen, loss of the substance ensues. Inadequate supply of this element impedes plant growth and makes shoots weak. Leaves become yellowish, which is a characteristic symptom of nitrogen deficiency. It becomes necessary to apply a larger quantity of nitrogen and reconsider the application method.
It is vital that the fertilizer used in the fields has even granulation, mechanical durability and hard texture, which will prevent the product from caking, crumbling and rubbing during transportation.
Strategic approach to fertilization
Planning the fertilization is also of great importance, especially if the unpredictability of the weather conditions is taken into consideration. Settling on the precise quantity of nitrogen required is a complex and important process.
Agricultural manufacturers need to bear in mind that the quantity of nitrogen used in various crops depends on the species and variety of plant as well as soil type. Each of those factors needs to be considered if fertilization is to be efficient, and the quantity and quality of crops are to meet the farmer’s expectations.
