INORGANIC FERTILIZERS

Overview

To help farmers feed the global population and manage the demand and supply curve, it is essential to provide crops with the right amount of food nutrients that are critical for crop growth. Quality fertilizers such as Opti-Growth are essential plant nutrient for obtaining maximum yield. Good fertilizers supplement the soil with an array of micronutrients. The three main types of fertilizers are nitrogen, phosphate and potash with nitrogenous fertilizer being the largest followed by phosphate and potash. Global population growth and insufficient nutritious diets are two main factors that drive the application of nitrogen fertilizers. Urea, UAN and ammonia are the most common types of nitrogenous fertilizers. They are essential for crop growth and their deficit can negatively affect crop yields. Phosphate fertilizers are key nutrients for root development and drought resistance. Potassium helps improve crop resistance to lodging, drought and disease.

Global growth and financial conditions impact various sectors including agriculture. Fertilizer production is largely dependent on energy prices as 80% of N capacity uses natural gas as feedstock. Relative growth and stability in oil prices boosts economies and is a driver for fertilizer demand. Fertilizers have witnessed a steady growth trend over the years due to the ever increasing global populations.
