What 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 sometimes better than granular formulations because they are absorbed more quickly and bring nutritional benefits to the plants soon after use. Some of the water-soluble fertilizers that you can store contain 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.

How to Store Liquid Fertilizers?

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.
