What exactly are liquid fertilizers? Liquid fertilisers are water-soluble minerals that farmers add to the soil to promote the growth and health of the plants. These solutions are absorbed more quickly and bring nutritional benefits to the plants soon after use often quicker than granular fertiliser.
Most of the water-soluble fertiliser that you can store contains essential elements such as:
Helps plants synthesize the energy they need to stimulate growth and promote the production of high-quality fruits or seeds.
The element is crucial for the healthy development of plant roots, fruits and leaves. Plants need it to stimulate food production and strengthen their immunity to infections and diseases.
This plant nutrient promotes fruit production by promoting energy transfer throughout the plant structure.
Plants need this nutrient to build a solid cell wall structure and to optimize the availability and transfer of other minerals.
For many agricultural businesses, the question is should I switch to liquid fertiliser?
In terms of application and effectiveness, technically and economically, liquid fertiliser has several advantages. We have listed the 10 most important advantages for you here:
1: Liquid fertiliser offers price advantages – economic advantages with liquid fertiliser usually results from the price advantage due to its simple storage.

3: Easy transport of liquid fertilisers – transport, handling and storage of liquid fertilisers is quick and uncomplicated and buy owning the storage tanks makes you flexible in your procurement buying fertilisers out of season when the price is lower.
4: Efficient nutrient supply through liquid fertilizer By absorbing the liquid fertilizer via leaves and roots, efficient nutrient supply is guaranteed even in dry weather making better use of the fertilizer and the plants absorb the nutrients quickly.
5: Reduction of nitrate leaching through targeted application in the growing season reduce nitrate leaching.
6: Combine liquid fertilizer with pesticides In some cases, liquid fertilizer can be mixed with pesticides (note the manufacturer’s instructions!). The combined application with pesticides saves time increases the effectiveness at peak times.
7: Reduced drift The drop evaporation and drift of active ingredients can be greatly reduced.
8: Better effect of the crop protection agents through the combined application with liquid fertilizer improves the active ingredient uptake of the herbicides.
Typically, plastic tanks have various properties that make it an inexpensive and safe way to store liquid fertilizers. These containers are the result of an automatic manufacturing process that results in a seamless tank. The tanks also keep your fertilizer safely inside. Fertiliser tanks are often required to be bunded and these can be either a concrete bund fabricated bund or a bunded fertiliser tank. The AIC has prepared a series of codes of practice for the storage of liquid fertilisers. They can be downloaded here.
