Nitrophoska

Nitrophoska

 

a compound nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium mineral fertilizer. It contains 35–52 percent N, P2O5, and K2O in various proportions and is produced in granules. The most common Nitrophoska consists of a precipitate, Ammophos, and ammonium nitrate obtained in a single production process by decomposition of apatite or phosphorite with a mixture of nitric and phosphoric acids and addition of ammonium and potassium chloride. It is used as a base and presowing fertilizer for all crops.

The standard commercial treatment consisted of Nitrophoska Special[R] (NP) (Incitec Pivot, Australia) containing 6.
Fertiliser treatments and N application rates are shown in Table 1 and consisted of: (1) no base fertiliser (Control); (2) Nitrophoska Special at 720 kg [ha.
The factorial consisted of three rates of NP fertiliser at 50%, 75% and 100% of the standard commercial rate and three inhibitor treatments: (1) no NI; (2) DMPP (ENTEC Nitrophoska Special); and (3) 0.
It should be emphasized, that plants much more easily absorb organic-mineral fertilizers obtained after the anaerobic fermentation, than the artificial fertilizers, such as urea, ammonium nitrate, nitrophoska.

An additional treatment was included with Nitrophoska Blue TE (BASF), supplying 120 kg N/ha, 50 kg P/ha, and 150 kg Mg/ha (12 kg/ha supplied by Nitrophoska and 138 kg/ha supplied by calmag) and having weed control.
The 4 treatments were broadcast in September 1994:2 levels of calmag (75 and 150 kg Mg/ha); Nitrophoska Blue TE at 120 kg N/ha, 50 kg P/ha, and 150 kg Mg/ha (12 kg/ha by Nitrophoska and 138 kg/ha supplied by calmag); and a control treatment (no Mg and no Nitrophoska added).
