A dense root system develops in the immediate vicinity of the Nitrophoska® fertilizer granule, which can absorb all nutrients in balanced quantities. This is especially important for the less mobile nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium. Young plants are optimally supplied and root growth stimulated.
Nitrophoska® granules are different in structure compared to standard NPK granules, they have a layered structure. Their dissolution in the soil under the action of soil moisture occurs gradually over time. Experiments have shown that even after one month there will still be residues of the granule in the soil. This does not mean that it does not dissolve well, but that it breaks down and releases nutrients slowly and gradually. This prevents from blocking of active substances in the soil and allows them to be used to the maximum by the plants throughout their growing season. The residues from the granules are a source of additional calcium and maintain the soil pH, making Nitrophoska® one of the least acidifying fertilizers.
