Explanatory films about fertilization
Our KALI Academy video overview shows clear explanatory films on the topics of plant nutrition and fertilization. Here, even complex issues are summarized in an easy to understand and compact way.
Why do plants need magnesium?
In fertilizer planning, a lot of attention is paid to nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. But what about magnesium? It is worth taking a closer look at how this nutrient functions in the plant. The KALI Academy explanatory video shows the potential that lies in targeted magnesium fertilization.
What is balanced fertilization?
All over the world, farmers are being encouraged to use nutrients more efficiently and to minimise undesirable, environmentally harmful losses. This requires balanced plant nutrition. The following video clip will show you how to use the 4R Nutrient Stewardship to implement balanced fertilization.
Which form of sulfur do plants absorb?
In plant nutrition, sulfur is one of the macronutrients. For a balanced application of fertilizers, it is also always necessary to ensure that the soil is supplied with a sufficient amount of sulfur. In the plant, the nutrient has a positive impact on the oil and protein content as well as on aroma and natural flavors. Sulfur is needed for good nitrogen conversion in the plant, helping to promote a good yield. In just two minutes, the KALI Academy video explains which type of sulfur – there are elemental sulfur, sulphur in the form of plaster or sulfate sulfur – can be absorbed best by the plant.
What is the struvite effect?
Efficient nitrogen and phosphorus use places a demanding challenge on farmers. One important approach is the additional application of magnesium sulfate as part of combined drill placement. The application of magnesium and sulfur can be applied in one step by using a mixture of ESTA® Kieserit gran. and DAP which can lead to struvite formation. Struvite ensures optimum growth for maize plants from the outset.
