What are the advantages of the localized fertilization and the use of microgranular fertilizers?
The use of microgranular fertilizers in agriculture goes hand in hand with the localized fertilization technique: but what are the advantages of this technique and the use of microgranular fertilizers?
Localized fertilization: any advantages?
We are discussing about a modern technique that allows to combine two main operations into one: sowing and nutrition. Using specific equipment in addition to the seed drill (such as hoppers), the fertilizer is distributed directly into the seed groove or to the transplant.
Among the countless advantages we can say that localized fertilization:
- makes nutrients available near the roots ensuring a starter effect,
- requires a reduced product dosage,
- optimizes production and labor costs,
- reduces the risks and damage caused by salinity.
The localized fertilization also allows to distribute in a homogeneous way the quantity of product thus granting a uniformity of germination of the whole cultivation.
DEMA microgranular fertilizers: solutions for fertiliser localization
As we have seen, the choice of this mode of fertilization has countless advantages, which can only increase when we talk about the use of microgranular fertilizers.
In fact, the choice of small granules (DEMA microgranule has a particle size distribution between 0.5 and 1.2 mm) allows to minimize phytotoxicity phenomena and to reduce the amount of product used per hectare.
The benefits also have an impact in terms of environmental sustainability: the location combined with the low dosage of fertilizer used significantly reduce the pollution of groundwater, the eutrophication of water resources and the soil exhaustion.
