Crop sustainability method

Plant nutrition must meet many requirements to be in tune with the current needs of the agriculture:

  • replenishing the losses of organic matter and recovering the decline of fertility of agricultural soils, often registering unbalanced physical, chemical and biological parameters ;
  • supplying nutrients in line with the specifications of organic production (EC Reg. 889/2008 and subsequent amendments and additions) requiring suitable doses according to the pace of the crop absorption;
  • meeting the criteria of organic fertilization with fertilizers permitted by legislation act no. 75 2010;
  • achieving a correct approach to environmental, supply and economic sustainability, in every situation.

 

The answers to these questions:

 

A) PRESERVATION OF FERTILITY

Through the revitalization of the soil and the restoration of annual losses of humus for mineralization.

In agriculture, soils represent a resource that is barely renewable: you must keep high levels of fertility, by acting effectively on:

  • biological fertility, to provide energy to microorganisms;
  • chemical fertility, to level off relations between macro and micro-nutrients;
  • physical fertility, to improve humification processes with the organic matter.

The transformation of crop residues by spreading proper organic matrices and  the revitalization of the humification processes are a sustainable solution to increase the humified organic component, which is the enhancer  of the whole agricultural fertility.

 

B) NUTRITIVE UNIT PROTECTION

To avoid the phenomena of insolubility, precipitation, leaching, evaporation in the soil and let the plant lead the nutrient exchanges.

The use of humified organic matrices to manufacture  organo-mineral fertilizers represents an effective and profitable solution to increase the efficiency of nutrient units and reduce soil losses, thus leading to an advantageous reduction in the use of mineral fertilizers .

 

THE SOLUTION

Improving the efficiency of mineral fertilizers by protecting them with humified organic matrices.

Thanks to the presence of functional groups of humic and fulvic acids,  stable bonds with the mineral components can be established:  the integration between organic and mineral components stabilizes the fertilizer further over time, and preserves it by the phenomena of insolubility, leaching, precipitation and evaporation. In this way the efficiency of the single fertilizing unit increases considerably.

The strength of UNIMER organo-mineral fertilizers lies in the humic matrices features, which are the key to their performance and environmental value.
