Ammonia is a raw material in the production of many nitrogen based fertilizers. It is also a building block for many chemicals, synthetic fibres, explosives and cleaners.
Because ammonium nitrate (AN) contains 50 % ammonium nitrogen, it has the advantage that it provides the plant with nitrogen quickly and at the same time does not lose nitrogen to the atmosphere.
Ammonium sulphate provides the plant with nitrogen and sulphur at the same time, and due to that enables the plant to have a very high growth and yield.
Diammonium phosphate in the form of hydrogen phosphate is used in the agricultural sector, where it used as a compound fertilizer. Because of its nutrient composition, DAP is also referred to as 18-46-0 in the trade.
Mono Ammonium Phosphate
Mono ammonium phosphate or MAP is used as a complex fertilizer containing nitrogen (11%) and phosphate (52%). Due to its composition it is also called 11-52-0.
Rock phosphate is a mineral feedstock for the production of phosphate fertilizers and phosphoric acid. It is extracted from the mineral apatite, which is best suited for the production of fertilizers.
Triple Super Phosphate
Triple Super Phosphate is a popular source of Phosphate nutrient in legumes (peas, lentils and beans) which do not require additional Nitrogen fertilization.
Singlesuperphosphate (SSP) with a phosphate content of 18-22% P2O5 is a very costeffective and commonly used fertilizer. Because of its sulphur content of 10-12% it provides a good sulphur basic supply to crops.
Urea is soluble in water and its most common use is as a fertilizer in the agriculture.
