Rural Liquid Fertilizers For Crop Nutrition

The big picture tells us that fertilisers are compounds given to plants to promote growth, and how they play a critical role in producing food.

The role of specialty fertilisers is emerging as an important – even imperative – inclusion in crop nutrition programs. Developing economies are becoming increasingly aware of their many benefits as they seek to gain maximum advantage and improve both crop quality and economic returns to agricultural production. It is by taking a holistic approach to plant nutrition that the specialty products formulated, manufactured and distributed by Rural Liquid Fertilisers (RLF) are being advanced, and significant science-based evidence supports this approach to crop nutrition.

Some universal benefits of specialty fertilisers are documented as being:

enhanced efficiency technology

ease of application

reduced application costs

increased agricultural productivity

more efficient nutrient uptake in plants

reduced potential for nutrient losses to the environment

low impact with resource and labour-saving attributes

However, RLF products bring even more benefits when used as part of a scientifically researched and planned integrated fertiliser management (IFM) program. This is the edge that RLF products bring to the marketplace.

The big picture tells us that fertilisers are compounds given to plants to promote growth, and how they play a critical role in producing food and how they make crops grow faster, and bigger, so that crop production and yield can be achieved or increased. It is also a given that fertilisers are applied in all agricultural environments (arable, permanent and pasture) to supplement the nutrient elements found in the soil, and that fertilisers also play an important role in the plant’s nutrient value and what they return to the soil at harvest end.

But this is not the only story. In addition to the essential elements of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, plants also require optimal levels of micro nutrients such as zinc, copper, manganese, molybdenum, boron, magnesium, iron, cobalt and sulphur. And this is where RLF specialty liquid crop nutrition products come into their own!
