Sulfate of potash: a versatile fertilizer for modern agriculture
Improves sugar content, firmness, vitamins and storage quality
Sulfate of potash is proven to improve not only yield but also many important quality parameters such as sugar content, firmness, vitamins and storage quality.
Today, many high value cash crops, such as tropical fruits or vegetables, are increasingly produced for overseas export...
CaTs® delivers soluble calcium when and where peanuts need it most
The most efficient and fast-acting source of calcium and sulfur available to peanut growers
CaTs® delivers soluble calcium when and where peanuts need it most. Large seed peanuts require plenty of soluble calcium at pegging for healthy pod and kernel development. Without adequate calcium, the plant can easily develop nutrient deficiencies such...
Magnesium plays a vital role in plant nutrition and physiology
Those roles include ATP formation in the chloroplast, photosynthetic C02 fixation, protein synthesis, chlorophyll formation, phloem loading and enzyme activation just to name a few.
Chlorophyll molecules contain magnesium at its center, surrounded by 4 nitrogen atoms.

A good fertilization program for potatoes must satisfy the nutritional needs of the crop throughout the growing season.
Latin America, which is where the potato originated, nowadays accounts for just 5% of total global production. A good fertilization program for potatoes must satisfy...
New terminal for our liquid fertilizers in Sinaloa, Mexico
Tessenderlo Kerley Mexico is ready to start operations at the new terminal located in Sinaloa in Northwest Mexico! This region has 866,000 hectares under irrigation, including 783,000 hectares of grains, 63,000 hectares of cash crops, and 20,000 hectares of perennials (mostly orchards).
The discovery of the possibility to convert inert atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia in 1913 led to a considerable increase in nitrogen fertilizer production.
The rapidly growing food demand, which is linked to an exploding global population, explains the development of nitrogen fertilizer consumption in agriculture.
The importance of quality for the foliar spraying of SOP
It is very important that growers wishing to apply foliar sprays of SOP use a product that is compatible with the application methods and equipment that is used for foliar spraying.
In fertigation systems, regular water-soluble fertigation grade products are dissolved in large tanks with continuous stirring. Once a homogeneous solution has been...

The importance of balanced fertilization
Even though leafy vegetables come from a very wide variety of plants, most actually share similar practices of cultivation. The most important crops in this category are lettuce and spinach. Whilst these vegetables can grow in cool to warm climates, most types of greens...
A balanced fertilization for bananas
The banana is the main tropical fruit exported throughout the world and it is mainly produced in large plantations. A balanced fertilization is a guarantee of a quality and marketable fruit production.
Bananas prefer deep soils, a good drainage, and a pH from 5.5 to 6.5, although...
Kiwifruit vines grow best on deep, alluvial soils.
They prefer loamy and silt-loamy soils rather than loamy sands. These vines require low-salt water as do many other fruit crops.
Safe levels for irrigation water include chloride less than 70 ppm, bicarbonate less than 200 ppm, sodium less than 50 ppm. Furthermore, the...
Potassium is essential in olive production
Olive trees are typical in the Mediterranean area, but they are also cropped in California, Latin America and Australia. Mineral nutrition is the main factor that affects yield in cropping the olive tree, together with water management and planting density. Although cropping...
Mineral nutrition of melons
1:0.7:2 is usually considered as the best ratio for a balanced fertilization. The mineral nutrition as well as water management should be carried out in accordance with the cropping system, soil analysis, and the production target. Melons prefer deep, light and well-drained soils. Outdoor crops require per hectare 80...
