Fertilizers are substances that can be solid, liquid or gaseous and contain one or more phytonutrients. They can be applied to soil or applied directly to plants to maintain or increase soil fertility, thereby producing high-quality crops. They supplement the nutrients that are naturally available in the soil and also provide other nutrients needed for specific types of crops.
China has become the world's largest producer and consumer of NPK compound fertilizers. There are about 4,000 companies and factories in my country that produce NPK compound fertilizers. Last year, the total production capacity was about 204 million tons. The market is spread all over the world.
Products produced at the Juci plant: corn steep liquor powder, with nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium contents above 8% and at least 20% of total nutrients. Since each particle of these fertilizers contains the same proportion of nutrients, application in the soil may be simple.
The NP fertilizer has a nitrogen content of at least 3%, a P2O5 content of 5%, and a total nutrient content of at least 18%. These products are suitable for places where the soil is rich in potassium or where potassium fertilizer can be used alone.
NK fertilizer contains at least 3% N and 5% K2O, and at least 18% total nutrients. These can be used in phosphate-rich soils that can be distributed independently.
PK fertilizers have various combinations of direct phosphate and potassium-based fertilizer materials. Both P2O5 and K2O components are at least 5%, while their nutritional components are at least 18%. Boron and magnesium are often added.
Compound fertilizers contain two or more nutrients, also known as multi-nutrient fertilizers. Compound fertilizer refers to a compound fertilizer formed by mixing various components to carry out a chemical reaction. Compound fertilizers can also be produced by mixing two or more granular fertilizers of similar size. Such products retain the physical and chemical properties of individual compounds. They are made by mixing basic fertilizers derived from ammonia with salts containing phosphorus or potassium.
It should be noted that the corn steep liquor powder compound fertilizer produced by the Juci factory did not add any chemical components during the production process. The nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium components are contained in the product itself, and there are no particularly important or abnormal environmental problems during the production process.
