Integral plant nutrition and the development of fertilizers form the core of modern agriculture and are inextricably linked with increased crop yields and a better food quality.
However, the degree to which fertilizers are utilized is not entirely up to plants. The properties of the soil have a determining effect on fertilizer utilization, and high losses of nutrients reduce the efficiency of fertilizing.
Over 40-50% of Nitrogen (N) is vaporized into the atmosphere and leached into the deeper layers of the soil, thus significantly reducing its utilization by the crops. In just a short amount of time, Phosphorus (P) forms poorly soluble compounds, is stabilized in the soil, and only 15-25% of the quantity applied remains available to the plants. Potassium (Κ) is leached into the deeper layers in sand soils, while in heavy clay soils it is bound by phyllosilicate minerals and rendered unavailable to plants during periods when the crops have high requirements in it.
The development of new technologies - such as nitrification inhibitors, chelates, various polymers, osmotic and polyanionic resins, and nanotechnology - are at the heart of modern research for the purpose of increasing the utilization of fertilizers by plants and achieving an integral nutrition of the crops and higher yields.
The new generation fertilizers Ωmega-fert have integrated all the most recent data of agricultural research in crop nutrition and have been developed to crucially alter the behavior of nutrients in the soil-plant system.
Through the ΝHET nanotechnology that is integrated in each granule, these fertilizers prevent the immobilization of the nutrients in the soil and minimize losses to the environment, thus increasing the availability of nutrients to the plants, maximize the efficiency of fertilizing, and secure nutrient sufficiency to the crops for a long period of time.
The unique capacity of Ωmega-fert fertilizers to supply the plants with assimilable forms of nutrients improves crop nutrition and plays a determining part in increasing the yields and improving the quality of agricultural products.
