UREA (46% N)
Urea is the most important nitrogenous fertilizer in the market, with the highest Nitrogen content (about 46 percent). Urea is widely used in the agricultural sector both as a fertilizer and animal feed additive. The main function of Urea fertilizer is to provide the plants with nitrogen to promote green leafy growth and make the plants look lush. Urea also aids the photosynthesis process of plants. Since urea fertilizer can provide only nitrogen and not phosphorus or potassium, it’s primarily used for bloom growth. The global production of urea amounted to roughly more than 180 million metric tons.
Sulfur is used for manufacturing sulfuric acid, fertilizers, pesticides and rubber products. It is involved in the development of protein and chlorophyll in plants. Many enzymes essential for biochemical reactions within the plant cell are activated by sulphur. Sulfur is also used as a component of infrastructre band structural materials. Global production of sulfur reaches to 70 million tones.
Potassium Sulfate contains potassium (K) and sulfur (S) – two of the essential nutrients that plants require to achieve optimum growth and reach their maximum potential. Also known as sulfate of potash, or SOP, potassium sulfate is a premium potash fertilizer with a number of benefits over the more commonly used muriate of potash (MOP). It improves yield and crop quality, reduces chlorides, adds sulfur and has lower salinity. The world’s total potassium sulphate production is estimated around 500,000 tonnes.
