Farming is one of the toughest things to do, keeping in mind various factors like weather changes, critter intrusion, pests, and plant diseases. Where all these factors play a significant role, there comes just another that has a bigger role to play- fertilizers. A farmer wants his crops to get the best of the soil and looks for effective solutions to do so in order to yield healthy crops.
Well, fertilizers are available in two forms, namely granular and liquid. Granular fertilizers have been used for ages as it is a traditional method of providing nutrients to the soil, whereas liquid fertilization has become popular nowadays for larger farms since it becomes elementary to fertilize the vast area, making it quick and easy for the soil to absorb nutrients altogether.
To understand better, here are some of the benefits of deploying liquid fertilization units in grander farms-
1) They are easy to control- Liquid fertilization units are easier to manage and can be operated via a single operator who can control the speed of the unit and flow of the liquid. The displacement meters provide accurate measurement of the fertilizers to be transferred to the fields without being affected by physical parameters, including pressure, viscosity, and pressure. Besides, one can change the outflow of the liquid’s speed by adjusting the computer machinery’s speed.
2) They can be effortlessly amalgamated- Since we all know that different crops require different compositions of nutrients or may even require various fertilizers in a combined form to grow properly; it becomes challenging and next to impossible with granular fertilizers as the varying sizes of different fertilizers are hard to be fused before they are actually provided to the crops. The liquid fertilizers can be mixed well in any proportion in the liquid fertilization units and supplied to the fields. Besides, the soil absorbs the liquid fertilizers faster as compared to the granular mixtures.
3) They offer uniform distribution- When granules of fertilizers are dropped in the field, they are not equally absorbed by every part of the area; it can affect the crops’ growth. When you consider fertilization’s liquid option, they get distributed uniformly, coating every plant and soil, making it absorb the nutrients equally. You can witness your plants to grow firmly and healthily.
4) They act fast- The granular fertilizers are in tangible form absorbed lately by the soil, whereas the liquid form gets consumed faster, stimulating the action quicker than the granular ones.
5) They led to a reduced waste during distribution- Nitrogen losses are lower in liquid fertilizers due to the lack of free ammonia in liquid form compared to solid fertilizers. Therefore, it is easy to assimilate other products as required by the crops. Various fertilization quality products, when infused, reduces the amount of waste generated from the fertilizers during distribution, thereby lowering the overall cost and energy needed to perform operations separately.
6) They offer safety during distribution- The process of producing, mixing, storing, and distributing liquid fertilizers is easy as the work is generally carried out in liquid fertilization units, protecting the farmers from coming in direct contact with them as compared to the solid granules which create a lot of dust when scattered, causing several physical problems.
