Ammonium Sulphate is one of the first and most widely used nitrogen (N) fertilizers for crop production, it contains 21% nitrogen and 23% sulfur. It is an inorganic sulfate salt obtained by reaction of sulfuric acid with two equivalents of ammonia.
FERTAN Ammonium Sulphate Benefits:
– Provides a fast-acting source of nitrogen and sulfur in water soluble form, it is therefore a valuable fertilizer in soils that are deficient in both elements.
– Suitable for cool-season and warm-season lawns.
– Among the major nitrogenous fertilizers, it has the least tendency to absorb atmospheric water, this characteristic favors longer storage (easy to store without caking).
– Compared to urea, it is more resistant to ammonia volatilization. In neutral to acid soils, it can be applied without soil incorporation.
– It can be applied directly to the soil either singly or mixed with some other fertilizers.
– It is easily blended with other nitrogen products, such as urea, to make a stable, dry lawn fertilizer.
– It is safe, even in extremely humid environments, and is highly beneficial if correctly applied.
– Nitrogen in the compound is in the form of ammonia easily assimilated by plants, and sulfur contributes to a more complete absorption of nitrogen and other micro and macro elements.
– Ammonium sulfate is suitable for application to most types of vegetables, fruits, cereals, and can be used in any climatic conditions.
– Long remaining in the root zone (fertile layer), without being washed out by rain or irrigation water, this ensures the absorption process by the plant roots.
– Not poisonous, so you can work with it without chemical protection.
– It helps lawns green up quickly.
* Ammonium sulfate fertilizer is not recommended for use when repetitive applications and long-term solutions are necessary since it can lead to soil acidification (pH levels gradually get lower over the years).
* When used in excess, however, it can cause a range of undesirable plant conditions, such as excessive leaf growth, weak plant bodies, damage, pest predation, and excessive thatch in lawns.
