Fertilisers containing mainly nutrients for the plant. Depending on the kind of fertiliser, they contain one (straight fertilisers) or more nutrients (compound fertilisers) Using fertilisers will result in :

  • better growth of plants and crops
  • better development and increased induction of flowers en fruits
  • more resistance against diseases (sickness) and plages

The most important elements that are presented in fertilisers are :

Categories

ORGANIC fertilisers (biological fertilisers) :

  • Full composed of natural components (rough materials) as there are: bloodmeal, beetwine, seaweed, bonemeal or nature (rock) phosphate, feathermeal, cocoashells,… WITHOUT any enrichment of chemical materials. An organic or biological fertiliser is rich in composition and has a long lasting period.

ORGANO-MINERAL fertilisers :

  • Build out of natural components form animal or vegetable origin and enriched with chemical (mineral or synthetic) materials.These fertilisers containing minimum 25 % organic matter and are working faster (but shorter) than the fully organic fertilisers.
  • The organic components in these types of fertilisers increases the formation of humus in the soil.

CHEMICAL fertilisers :

  • Are composed on a artificial way. They don't contain organic matter en are not enriched with animal or vegetable materials. Very aggresive action and a lot of risk to burn roots and plants when doses are not respected. In these categorie there are also fast- and slow acting chemical fertilisers.
