WATER SOLUBLE FERTILIZER
What is water soluble fertilizer?
Water soluble fertilizers are fertilizers that can be dissolved in water and added or leached out of the soil easily. With water soluble fertilizers it is easy to control the precise amount of nutrients available to plants. Water soluble fertilizers are best applied through micro irrigation systems.
Soluble fertilizers usually have N-P-K numbers listed on their label. The N is for nitrogen, the P is for phosphorus and the K is for potassium or potash. Of the 16 (12 of which are contained in water soluble fertilizers) known elements necessary for plant life, N-P-K, are the three that are of the most importance and always listed on water soluble fertilizers, in that order. Following N-P-K, calcium(Ca) and magnesium(Mg) are the two, second most important nutrients listed on the label. The rest, iron(Fe), sulfur(S), manganese(Mn), boron(B), molybdenum(Mb), zinc(Zn) and copper(Cu) are trace elements or micro-nutrients.
What are the advantages of water soluble fertilizer?
Water soluble fertilizers are efficiently absorbed by plants.
25-30% of recommended dose of fertilizer can be reduced by using WSF.
Essential nutrients can be applied uniformly to each and every plant even on daily basis.
Applicable through irrigation water as well as foliar spray for quick absorption by plant.
As it is applied on crop requirement, it reduces accumulation of salts in soil
How to apply water soluble fertilizer to crops?
Base application with irrigation water: This method gives plants food while you water. Used with water-soluble fertilizers, follow the mixing instructions and water the soil at the plant’s base with a watering through drip irrigation.
Foliar application: This approach is similar to base application, but the water is applied to the leaves rather than to the soil. It is useful when plants need to quickly absorb trace elements.
