Mineral fertilizers, commonly referred as chemical fertilizers, are not entirely made of natural ingredients. This is due to the fact that a mineral fertilizer is created through a chemical process. The materials present in these fertilizers, however, can be found also in nature.
Because no conversion is required, all components present in an inorganic fertilizers can be instantly absorbed by the plant. This is viewed as a benefit since the fertilizer is not reliant on the soil’s ability to survive. Furthermore, these fertilizers are highly soluble, making them simple to apply to the plant.
Furthermore, the nutritional strategy can be tailored to the needs of the plant, ensuring that the cultivator’s wishes are always met.
Chemical fertilizers, as contrast to organic fertilizers, allow the plant to ‘select’ one or more elements that are required at the time. Inorganic fertilizers provide the opportunity for more targeted/steered fertilization. As a result, all of the plant’s nutritional requirements, as determined in the dietary scheme, can be met. The ‘select’ of the crop is not required.
Inorganic fertilizers do not add to the soil’s life, which can be considered as a disadvantage. In addition, the sodium content of inorganic fertilizer is larger than that of organic fertilizers. If chemical fertilizers aren’t applied appropriately, sodium can build up in the roots and cause damage. When using inorganic fertilizer, this is an important thing that should be taken into consideration.
How to choose the most beneficial chemical fertilizer to the crop
The best fertilizer for your production is determined by a number of criteria. When making a decision, consider, the nutritional needs, type of substrate, and sensitivity of the plant, and how you like to fertilize the crop.
It is recommended that you seek advice from a fertilizer specialist when deciding on fertilizers to avoid poor decisions.
