One of the principal objectives in agriculture is to find effective, sustainable ways to increase crop productivity. The answer lies in finding the best way to give your crops what they need to grow. Sunlight and water are obvious. So is the use of fertilizers. But adding nutrients to soil is not as simple as it might seem. You need to know what the quality of the soil is, what nutrients are needed, and how to best apply it. With a wide range of liquid and dry fertilizer products on the market today, it could be challenging to determine what would give you the best results.
Comparing liquid and dry fertilizer products
While there are supporters of both these product types, the short answer is that there is no clear overall winner. While arguments can be made in support of both, and against both in certain conditions – the relevance of these arguments will differ from farm to farm, crop to crop, and farming style to farming style. For some applications the one product type will deliver better benefits than the other, and vice versa.
Typically, the nutritional content of both fertilizers are quite similar. The differences often lie in the cost, storage and application of the chosen product type.
Dry fertilizer holds the benefit of providing slow nutrient release options, and can typically be stored for longer than some liquid counterparts without the concern that it will “settle out” over time. They are usually cheaper in bulk, and a better option for fertilizing fields when preparing for planting, as the nutrients stay present for longer.
Liquid fertilizer takes up less storage space and provides a more uniform application of nutrients. They are well-suited for highly specific nutrient top-ups during the crop life-cycle.
