Ensuring the optimal growth and productivity of crops is a top priority for every farmer. The productivity of crops directly influences the earning potential of a farm. However, crop management should also be approached in a way that is as efficient as possible to avoid compromising the profitability of the farm. This includes soil monitoring and the provision and replenishment of the relevant nutrients in the soil to promote plant growth. It has been scientifically shown that the use of fertilizers that are enhanced with a nitrogen stabiliser delivers demonstrably better results than when using fertilizers without this addition.
Typically, nitrogen is a major component of fertilizers. This is because it is an essential ingredient to facilitate plant growth – a deficiency of nitrogen is estimated to be the most common nutritional problem that affects the poor growth of plants globally. It forms an important part of chlorophyll – the necessary compound that allows plants to absorb sunlight energy and, together with CO2 and water, create sugars through the process of photosynthesis. When plants don’t receive sufficient amounts of this nutrient during their main growth period, there is a bigger risk for potential yield losses.
Fertilizers that are enhanced with nitrogen stabilisers are more efficient in supplying plants with the required nutrients compared to fertilizers that are not enhanced with stabilisers. This is because nitrogen typically undergoes ammonia volatilisation in the absence of stabilisers, which can lead to a nutrient loss of up to 40%. Using an enhanced fertilizer is, thus, more efficient in replacing nutrients, provides better value for money, and significantly increases the efficacy of nutrient management efforts.
