Fertilizer is an essential part of growing plants. It adds nutrients and texture to soil to provide nutrients to trees, vegetables, herbs, shrubs and flowers. There are several ways to categorize fertilizer, and the most basic is whether it is organic or inorganic.
Organic fertilizer is all natural and includes things such as bat guano, compost, peat moss, wood ash and manure. These are general soil amendments. One advantage of using compost as a fertilizer is that it won’t burn plants or poison pets. It also does not require a specific timetable of application and watering because of the slow-release of nutrients. They can have long-term positive effects on the soil without damaging groundwater. But the traditional organic fertilizers fermentation time is too long, we can choose the organic fertilizer production line which will largely short the organic fertilizers fermentation time. New Type Organic Fertilizer Dedicated Granulator Machine is the most widely used granulating equipment to produce organic fertilizer. Every year, Whirlston Fertilizer Machinery exports several dozens new type granulator to countries like United States, Kenya, India, South Africa, Nepal, Bangladesh etc.
Inorganic fertilizers are primarily derived from chemical compounds, either mineral or synthetic. They typically come as a powder, pellets, granules or a liquid. Most inorganic, concentrated fertilizer is rated based on the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Other chemicals that might be included in inorganic fertilizers include calcium, sulfur, iron, zinc and magnesium. chemicals are generally lighter and easier to transport than their organic counterpart. If you want to make the inorganic fertilizer by yourself, the Compound Fertilizer Production Line is your best choice. Rotary Drum Granulator is the most popular compound fertilizer granulation machine. It is with the largest output, easier to operation and maintenance.
It also can be classified according to its ingredients, whether it is solid or liquid.
Nitrogen plays a vital role in the protein formation process of plants. It supports overall plant growth and the development of healthy leaves. Nitrogen fertilizer refers to one of the most common categories of fertilizers produced out of nitrogen chemical combinations. Most of l nitrogen based fertilizers are made from the ammonia (nh3), which is produced by the haber-bosch process. Plant and animal byproducts are also the most common source of nitrogen based fertilizer.
Phosphorous aids in root and flower development and increases the rate of growth. It is used by plants to store and transfer energy. Steamed bone meal is a common source of phosphorus in the garden. Using this kind of organic fertilizer will feed your plants best if applied while planting, Landscape and Garden suggests. As for inorganic phosphates, a superphosphate is the gardener’s friend for a variety of soil issues. Single, double and triple superphosphates will yield different levels of concentrated phosphoric acid into the soil.
Fruit trees, potatoes and chilies need a potassium-releasing fertilizer, according to Landscape and Garden online. However, be sure there is a potassium deficiency before amending for it. Muriate of potash and sulfate of potash are readily dissolved into your soil. Sandy soil will especially appreciate this treatment.
Compound fertilizer production line, equipped with advanced fertilizer manufacturing technique, can finish fertilizer granulation in one process. And it also can produce N-P-K compound fertilizer in different percentage composition applicable for different requirements of soils and crops.
Another way to categorize fertilizer is by whether it is liquid or solid.
Liquid fertilizers are fast-acting. Product can be delivered directly to a grower in the blend their farms need. This saves the farmer both time and money. Nutrition can be placed in the root zone for maximum uptake. Since they’re quickly absorbed, they require application every two to three weeks.
Solid fertilizers are applied dry and must be watered in. Solid fertilizers are easier to control because you can decide how much fertilizer you’re using and where it’s being dispersed. They’re normally applied with mechanical spreaders.
Solid fertilizers are produced in two different formulations: quick-release and slow-release.
Quick-release fertilizer normally lasts for three to four weeks, depending upon the temperature and the amount of rainfall.
There are two main types of slow-release fertilizers: water-soluble nitrogen fertilizers (WSN) and water-insoluble nitrogen (WIN), available for specific applications.
