"Aquarin" - the best corrective feeding during the growing season
Continuing the “question and answer” section from the company “Buyskie Fertilizers”, today we’ll talk about corrective feeding during the growing season. For this, summer residents are accustomed to using complex mineral fertilizers, the effectiveness of which largely depends on how well they are dissolved in water. But, thanks to the appearance of fertilizers of the new generation “Aquarin”, this problem disappears by itself. Read about all the benefits of Aquariums in the article.
All questions about fertilizer will be answered by the head of the agricultural chemical service of Buisky Chemical Plant OJSC Belozerov Dmitry Alexandrovich.
Question: how are “Aquariums” different from complex mineral fertilizers such as azofoski (nitrophoski) or fertilizer mixtures?
Answer: conventional complex fertilizers are a mixture of mineral salts containing two, three, four nutrients, which are either part of one granule (azofoska, nitrophoska), or a mixture of granules (powder and granules) of different components (fertilizer mixture).
They are intended for introduction into the soil during its mechanical treatment. Nutrients are in slightly soluble form, getting into the soil, slowly dissolving, have a pronounced prolonged effect.
If such fertilizers are dissolved in water for irrigation or spraying of garden crops, then considerable efforts will have to be made to dissolve, and anyway an insoluble precipitate will remain at the bottom of the tank.
For use in sprayers, such a solution will have to be defended or filtered. But, most importantly - for us it remains unknown what did not dissolve from this fertilizer and what we did not bring to the plants when feeding?
To avoid such difficulties when dissolving, for the convenience of gardeners, special fertilizers have been developed that are completely soluble in cold water, do not give sediment. Special fertilizer solutions can be operated through any sprayers and irrigation systems, including drip, without fear of clogging.
Famous representatives of this category of fertilizers - "Aquarin" and "Mortar".
Question: Is it possible to combine “Aquarin” (“Solution”) with pesticides?
Answer: combine plant protection products (plant protection products) with water-soluble fertilizers is even recommended. SZR by nature - poisons. Even if the plants are treated not against weeds, but against insects (insecticides), then they also act in a depressing manner on the plant.
They do not kill, but physiological processes are stopped, the plant freezes in development - the root system ceases to provide the plant with water and nutrition in the required amount.
This can last from several days to two weeks, and foliar top dressing, combined with the processing of plant protection products or separately with fertilizer, 2-3 days after chemical treatment, helps the plant to get out of stress.
Fertilizing on a leaf provides a small but necessary amount of nutrients. The plant comes out of stress, begins to function, connects the root system.
"Aquarin" ("Solution") is compatible with most of the applied plant protection products, but there are so many of them and the range of pesticides is constantly updated that it is difficult to verify in practice all mixing options.
In practice, experts recommend mixing a small amount of the desired pesticide and fertilizer. We look at the solution. If there is no precipitation, flakes, suspended matter and other non-standard formation, then we prepare the solution in full for processing.
Also, do not forget the rules for preparing the irrigation solution - first we dissolve dry products (powders, granules), then gels, suspensions and only then aqueous solutions of the preparations. Then the probability of non-dissolution of the components will be low or equal to zero.
Question: Is it possible to use "Aquarin" in solutions for drip irrigation, in hydroponics?
Answer: "Aquarin" is a special water-soluble fertilizer for a wide range of crops, which is used in various systems of watering and spraying plants, including hydroponics. Modern irrigation technologies place high demands on water and fertilizers.
Indeed, not all fertilizers are suitable for drip irrigation. The reason may be raw materials having a high percentage of insoluble parts. And 0.1% is considered high, i.e. 1 g of impurity per 1 kg of fertilizer.
At "Aquarium" the value of the insoluble residue is not more than 0.01%, i.e. no more than 0.1 g per 1 kg.
Question: What trace elements are included in the "Aquarium"?
Answer: "Aquarin" is a complex fertilizer. It consists of macro- (N, P, K), meso- (Mg, S, Na) and trace elements (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Mo, B, Co). A complex of nutrients is needed in order to provide the plant with full nutrition. When we probably do not know what the plant needs at the moment, but we want to make our plant stronger, more beautiful, healthier, we need to use complexes. For example, a person doesn’t eat separately proteins, carbohydrates, zinc or magnesium, but eats food that contains everything necessary for life in the set.
Trace elements, despite their small percentage in the composition of the fertilizer, play an important role in the development of plants. Each trace element is a separate function or their set in plant metabolism. Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, etc., as a building material, and trace elements - as an element of construction control.
In "Aquarium" there are several microelements: iron, zinc, copper, manganese, molybdenum and boron. Some of them are in mineral form (Mo, B), and some in chelate (Fe DTPA, Zn EDTA, Cu EDTA, Mn EDTA).
Chelated trace elements are chemical compounds of metals with an organic acid of artificial (EDTA, DTPA, etc.) or natural origin (amino acids). Such compounds give a greater effect from the application, due to the chemical stability of these compounds and the preservation of the availability of trace elements for plants.
