NPK Effects On Crops
May 11, 2016

    In addition to the genetic characteristics of the crop, crops quality is also affected by the supply of nutrients, soil characteristics and other factors. Experiments show that under the same soil conditions, when increasing the amount of fertilizer, crop yield and quality will be significantly higher than non-fertilized crops.


    Nitrogen (N) is mainly to improve content of protein on crops, high protein content of wheat to make bread, bread is fluffy significantly. However, only use nitrogen will get negative effect. Such as the wheat germination rate will getting very low.

Phosphate fertilizer (P2O5) can not only increase production, but also improve crops quality. For example, placing P2O5 fertilizers on wheat, the content of protein can be improved, and it will increase the content of essential amino acids and improve the bake quality. Carrot with P2O5 fertilizer will be high quality and production and bright colored.


   Potassium (K2O) is considered to be “quality elements” in crops production. With K2O can increase yield of wheat, enhance cotton fiber strength, improve oil content of seed oil crops. But the right amount is necessary.


   This shows that fertilization plays an important role in promoting crop growth, but avoid excess. There are commonly used in fertilizer formulations NPK15-15-15,NPK 12-12-17 etc. NPK ratio is adjustable. According to the characteristics of crops, rational use of NPK fertilizer is very important.
