Technology profile

Plant-Prod Water Soluble Fertilizers are manufactured by our exclusive turbo process, developed specifically for making high quality, water-soluble fertilizers. It provides the consistent and uniform product required by growers.

The turbo process permits strict control over solubility, soluble salts, pH, colour, particle size, moisture, and other important characteristics. Samples are continuously monitored to ensure that all levels of both major nutrients and minor elements are met and all other specifications are within our tightly defined limits.

Plant-Prod fertilizers contain only nutrients normally required by plants. Undesirable elements and compounds, such as chlorides or sulphates, which are common in many high analysis fertilizers, are not found in plant-prod at agronomic levels.
