Choosing the Right Liquid Fertilizer for Plant's Nutrition Boost

Just like human beings, animals, and all other living organisms, plants also have certain nutritional requirements in order to grow. Usually, they get a balanced source of nutrients from the soil that not only supports their growth but also promotes good health. With each harvest, the soil starts losing its nutrients. Nature also has its own way of replenishing these nutrients, such as through the decomposition of animal waste and dead plants, but at times it fails to do so. This is when the soil becomes nutrient deficient, and it can significantly affect plant growth and health as well. In such a scenario, the soil needs some additional nutrition in the form of fertilizers. Fertilizers are important for the overall well-being of the soil and plants. When used the right way, they can not only increase the yield but also make the soil more fertile. In short, fertilizers play a major role in nourishing plants and helping them thrive.

Nowadays, there are different fertilizers available in the market that you can choose from. Among all the options available, liquid fertilizers have gained huge popularity. Here is a detailed explanation of liquid fertilizers, their benefits, and the right way to choose one.

A Closer Look

Liquid fertilizer, as the name suggests, is a type of nutritional product for plants that is liquid in nature. They ensure that the plant roots get enough nutrient supply, leading to increased plant growth. Since these fertilisers eliminate the need for smashing and mixing dry components, the application does not require much effort. Due to their easy application and better effectiveness, these fertilisers are becoming the preferred choice of farmers and home gardeners alike. Although liquid fertilizers are not organic, they definitely play a significant role in reducing environmental impacts.

Here are a few key benefits of using liquid fertilizers for plants:

  • Better nutrient absorption
  • Higher efficiency
  • Effortless application
  • Easy availability
  • Cost-effectiveness

Take Your Pick!

To ensure optimal growth and maintain the good health of plants, it is important to choose the right liquid fertilizer for plants. Here are a few factors that you should keep in mind while making a choice:

  • Nutrient Composition: Choose a liquid fertilizer that provides your plants with essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (N-P-K).
  • Type of Plant: Every plant has its own specific nutritional requirements. So, it is important to understand what your plants need and choose a fertiliser accordingly.
  • Nutrient Ratios: The N-P-K ratio indicates the proportion of each nutrient in that fertiliser, and it can be easily found on the product label.
  • Additional Nutrients: Sometimes only NPK is not enough, as the plants need some additional nutrients. In such cases, always go for liquid fertilizers with micronutrients such as iron, zinc, calcium, etc.

Currently, there is a wide range of liquid fertilisers available in the market that you can choose from. Due to its high nitrogen content, urea is often called the king of fertilisers. When it comes to liquid products, liquid urea is equally effective. IFFCO Nanourea is the most popular liquid urea fertiliser. It is a nanotechnology-based product that is commonly used to treat nitrogen deficiency in plants. Since nano-urea has an approximate particle size of 20-50 nm and a higher surface area, it has 80% higher nutrient use efficiency. In addition to this, this liquid urea fertilizer is also a better alternative to other chemical fertilisers, so it can be used in sustainable farming as well.
