SANF GREENMENS PVT LTD- Fertilizer Management Tips For Effective And Economical Fertilizer Use

Fertilizers are generally defined as any material, which supplies one or more of the chemical elements required for plant growth. Most fertilizers that are commonly used in agriculture contain the three basic plant nutrients, namely nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK). Some fertilizers also contain certain “micronutrients,” such as zinc and other metal, which are essential for plant growth. Fertilizers are applied to make up for the essential nutrients for plant growth to the soil after they have been depleted. Fertilizers used in excess may enter streams by surface runoff or leaching from agricultural lands. There’s a huge amount of nitrogen and phosphorous that is present in the runoff. Increased amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous, and other micronutrients can greatly affect public health and can be damaging for the aquatic ecosystems.

There are some common fertilizer management mistakes that growers make, including

  1. It is only NPK that most growers consider, while completely overlooking other important nutrients. Plants require balanced nutrition which consists of at least 13 essential nutrients in different quantities, and a lack of even one nutrient will limit crop growth, and nothing can make up for this deficiency. We know that nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are the three major nutrients and are consumed by the plant at larger amounts, but a deficiency of one of the secondary elements (sulfur, calcium, and magnesium) or even one of the micronutrients (iron, manganese, zinc, boron, copper, and molybdenum), might severely impact the yield.
  2. Growers don’t pay much heed to test the soil, plant, and water. Testing the soil, plant, and water is the only way to know which and how much fertilizer you should apply. Also, these tests help in recognizing any nutritional disorders, or it might be too late to identify making it practically impossible to rectify them. It’s recommended that you test your soil, water, and plant at regular intervals to reach the full yield potential of your crop.
  3. A major mistake made by growers is the application of too much fertilizer. With regards to fertilizer application, do not assume “the more, the merrier.” Excessive fertilizer application can adversely affect the crop, soil, and the environment. By applying more fertilizer, irreversible damage might occur due to salinity accumulation or due to the toxicity of specific elements.
  4. Just using the correct rates of fertilizer isn’t enough, applying the right fertilizer rates at the right time is equally important. Unfortunately, this is a common mistake that leads to a loss of yield. It is essential that growers provide the right nutrients at the right time, according to the requirements of the specific crop at its different growth stages, since a nutrient, if applied too late after the crop had needed it, might restrict the plant’s development, causing yield loss. Also, remember not to apply the right fertilizers too early, as there’s a risk of nutrient loss due to leaching or runoff and high salt level that might damage the crop.
  5. Steer clear of chemical fertilizers. Natural organic fertilizers like livestock manure, bone meal and vermicompost offer the nutrients necessary for plant growth, while they are less likely to overfeed and chemically burn your plants.

SANF GREENMENS PVT LTD strongly recommends that you create your own valuable, no-cost organic fertilizers from leaves, grass clippings, and kitchen scraps that are least likely to injure young plants because of being less concentrated than chemical formulas. You’ll also have the peace of mind knowing the food you cultivate is free of chemicals and is highly nutritious, thus ensuring good health of yours and your family.

Tips for better fertilizer use efficiency:

  1. It’s important that you test your soil to determine its nutrient needs before you fertilize, since adding unneeded nutrients can disrupt pH levels and lead to toxic accumulations of salts and other harmful elements.
  2. Select a fertilizer according to the soil reaction, for example, acidic fertilizer for alkaline soils and basic fertilizers for acidic soil reactions.
  3. Place the fertilizer about 3-4 cms by the side or below the seed (to discourage weed growth) instead of surface application through broadcasting (spreading fertilizers uniformly all over the field).
  4. Talking about the home-mixing of fertilizers, make sure you follow the fertilizer-mixing guide and apply the mixture as soon as possible.
  5. Avoid poor drainage and avoid flooding with too deep water for at least a week after the application of the fertilizers.
  6. Treat acidic soils with limiting materials from time to time (when necessary).
  7. In the case of drylands, deeply place fertilizer alongside foliar feeding of nitrogen (i.e., urea) by spraying nitrogenous fertilizer instead of top dressing.
  8. Add organic manures or do green manuring at least once in 3-5 years. Weed growth should be deterred in cropped areas, during any part of the year.
  9. You should use slow-release nitrogenous fertilizers like sulphur coated urea, urea super granules in case of flooded fields, or calcareous (containing calcium carbonate) soils to minimize loss of nitrogen.
  10. For deepwater crops, use mud balls (contain urea) as they help in proper placement and also reduces the loss of nitrogen from the field.
  11. It is very important that you take appropriate plant protection measures and practice proper tillage so that plants remain healthy and are able to absorb the applied nutrients from the field.

When a client partners with us, SANF GREENMENS PVT LTD completely trains the staff in soil health management, fertilizer management, livestock management, and more. Very soon SANF GREENMENS PVT LTD is going to start a training program for the farmers and looking forward to generating employment by training the young generation in the various natural farming methods.

In a fertilizer management training program, you’ll learn how to handle and use fertilizer, prepare natural fertilizers, when to use and in how much quantity, handling/storing fertilizers, application of fertilizer (timing, rates/types), and more.

It is extremely important that one learns how to manage fertilizer use to ensure the safety of the environment and human health. Nitrogen fertilizer (natural and synthetic) can contribute to nitrates in drinking water. Pregnant or nursing women and infants are especially susceptible to nitrate related potentially very serious health problems.
