PHOSPHORUS

„The evaluation of a new fertilizer USP in comparison to CSP fertilizer in vegetation studies”

The aim of the project is to evaluate agricultural utility of the new two component USP fertilizer, obtained from urea pulp, sulphuric acid and phosphate.

The research hypothesis assumes that the product will be a source of well – digestible for plants basic nutrients – N, P and S. It is expected that the nitrogen – phosphoric USP fertilizer will have beneficial influence on growth, yield and quality parameters of experimental plants (winter rape, winter wheat and corn) as well as of equivalent effects relating to conventional fertilizers used for comparison.

The research results will help to prepare the essential evaluation of the new fertilizer before introducing it for a distribution.

Project participants:

  • The Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation – National Research Institute, The Department of Weed and Soil Science in Wrocław
  • New Chemical Syntheses Institute in Puławy
  • Grupa Azoty Zakłady Azotowe „Puławy” S.A.
