Application of fertilizers

JP RENLIS powdered fertilizer is made from humified beef cattle manure compost, which is produced using the unique composting technology developed by the scientists of the Centre of Agro-ecology of Aleksandras Stulginskis University. Compost is very humified and is therefore suitable as a raw material for the production of other bulk, granular and liquid organic fertilizers.

Powdered fertilizers are produced by grinding the dried beef cattle manure compost.

Fertilizers may be used in organic production in accordance with the requirements of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 889/2008.

Application of powdered fertilizers Powdered fertilizers can be applied in autumn or spring before sowing or planting. When fertilizing in autumn, the amount of nutrients, which the plants easily absorb, significantly increases in the soil in spring. This application is recommended for plants in soil that has a heavier granulometric texture. It is better to fertilize plants before sowing or planting in soils that have a lighter granulometric texture (sandy loam, loam with a light granulometric texture), this will therefore avoid leaching of nutrients into the deeper layers.

Powdered fertilizers may be used for field, garden, orchard, and greenhouse plants, ornamental trees and shrubs, balcony and potted plants. Powdered fertilizers are rich in macro elements (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, sulphur and sodium), microelements (zinc, boron, copper, molybdenum and cobalt), and ultra-micro elements such as iodine and selenium, etc. There is no need to spray plant leaves additionally with microelement fertilizers.

Using powdered fertilizers: It is recommended to spray crops during the growing season and water them with liquid organic fertilizers to increase crop yields.

Powdered organic compost fertilizers have a long-term effect on plants and soil; this depends on the rate of fertilizer. The effect on the soil lasts for at least three years when rates are higher than 0,4 l/m2. The effect decreases to 1-2 years at lower rates of fertilization.

Application of powdered compost fertilizers restores degraded soils and improves the physical and chemical properties of soil. Due to the high degree of humification of compost, the amount of humus in the soil may be restored gradually. If the amount of humus in the soil is less than 1.5 percent, mobile phosphorus and potassium less than 100 mg kg-1, the amount of humus, phosphorus and potassium in the soil will increase within a few years after continuous fertilization with granular fertilizers. The annual rate of fertilizers should be not less than 0,4 l/m2.

Powdered fertilizers can be used for vegetables (cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, etc.) grown in greenhouses before planting, directly to the soil, or during the growing season. Plants can be fertilized several times during the growing season. The effect will be greater if the leaves of plants are additionally sprayed with liquid organic fertilizers or watered with dissolved organic fertilizers.

Fertilizers can be dissolved in water and the plants grown outdoors and in greenhouses can be watered with this solution.

Powdered fertilizers are suitable for potted flowers. After spreading fertilizers on a substrate of the plants, the plants should be watered. When the flowers are watered, the growing flowers absorb the nutrients dissolved in the water. It is also possible to water the flowers with fertilizers dissolved in water.
