Liquid complex fertilizers have recently gained the great popularity in agriculture. They represent an aqueous solution or suspension containing two or more components in their chemical composition. Their main advantage is deemed to be the fact that there is no need to add them to the soil for a certain depth; it is enough to spray them on the surface of the field and further to seal them with any soil tillage implement.
The liquid complex fertilizer copes well with the task, such as elimination of minor-nutrient element deficiency in the nutrition of vegetative plants; besides, it is applied in a foliar way, which greatly facilitates the process of fertilizing.
Substances included into the composition of liquid complex fertilizers prevent the development of diseases in plants and ensure the high crop yield, and thus, they increase profits of the agricultural company.
Liquid complex fertilizers can be applied throughout the whole process of growth and development of plants. When it is necessary to obtain the acceleration in the plant growth or to stimulate the fruit ripening, then in this case, using liquid complex fertilizers is the best option. The spraying helps to fill the shortage of nitrogen and potassium in plants that are in instant need to have them for ripening and growth.
In the production, liquid complex fertilizers pass through the neutralization with ammonia of orthophosphoric acid or polyphosphoric acid. Owing to the latest technology, such fertilizers can have different amounts of nutrients in their composition; this is regulated at the wish of the buyer in the process of production.
Usually, the liquid complex fertilizer solution has a dark-gray or greenish color, and its average density is about 1,4 g/cm3. The composition approximately includes forty-eight percent of the active substance, of which thirty-seven percent are phosphorus so vital for plants, and about eleven percent are nitrogen, which is also necessary for plants for their complete development.
Liquid complex fertilizers cannot be mixed, and solutions cannot be made with fertilizers, in whose composition ammonia is included.
The liquid complex fertilizer is usually applied in the aqueous solution of various proportions, or as the aqueous solution of additional solid nitrogen fertilizers.
Plants by their nature easily and quickly appropriate the main elements of liquid complex fertilizers – nitrogen and phosphorus, which significantly increases the efficiency from the fertilizer.
Using liquid complex fertilizers you can get rid of or, at least, significantly reduce the level of diseases, such as rust and powdery mildew.
The only thing that is important to remember when using liquid complex fertilizers is a necessity of the rational application; first of all, please be guided by real needs of plants; your harvest and its quality depend on these factors.
Liquid complex fertilizers can be used as the main fertilizer for agricultural crops and as the regular dressing, if necessary.
In order to use the liquid complex fertilizer as the main one, it can be applied both within the soil and by spraying it on the field surface before plowing and cultivation. What is noteworthy is that the liquid complex fertilizer will not lose its useful properties in the gaseous state.
Liquid complex fertilizers do not require special precautionary measures, as they are not highly flammable substances and explosive materials.
Due to the fact that the composition of liquid complex fertilizers does not include the element such as ammonia, there is no need to transport them in the closed sealed container, which greatly simplifies the whole process of storage and logistics.
As the need arises, agricultural companies can mix pesticides or growth stimulators together with liquid complex fertilizers when processing the field.
