Proper use of nitrophosphate as a fertilizer


Nitrophoska - the most popular plant food. It is a mixture of (tuk) nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, vital minerals for all crops. The use of fertilizer nitrophoska improves soil structure and increases the yield of fruit and vegetable crops. Therefore, this fat is indispensable for growing tomatoes.

The composition and purpose of the drug Nitrofoska

Nitrophoska is a balanced mineral granular fertilizer. It contains nitrogen (N), potassium (K), phosphorus (P) in the form of salts with an equal share 16:16:16. These salts are ammonium nitrate, ammonium phosphate, potash nitrate, superphosphate, ammonium chloride.

This composition is suitable for feeding any species of plants.

Nitrogen need plants to build green mass. This is an important element for the process of photosynthesis. Without it, can not do, growing seedlings of cucumbers, tomatoes.

Potassium affects the taste of berries, fruits, vegetables, tomatoes, accelerates the synthesis of sugars.

Phosphorus important for the development of strong roots, for better fruiting. In general, it starts all the metabolic processes of the plant.

Nitrophoska is a granule and is suitable for any plant.

In addition to the classic composition 16:16:16, there are several types of this feeding with additives:

  • Sulfuric acid nitrophoska. Sulfur (S) added to composition. It is recommended to feed tomatoes and cucumbers, cabbage and mustard.
  • Sulphate nitrophoska. Calcium (Ca) is added to its mixture, which improves the color and enhances the brightness of the leaves. It is used for plants with decorative foliage.
  • Phosphate nitrophosphate. Its composition contains an increased concentration of phosphorus. It is needed primarily for vegetables to digest fiber. Thanks to phosphorus, you can get a healthy harvest with dense fruits that will be stored well.

Advantages and disadvantages compared with other feedings


  • convenient to enrich the soil when digging, thanks to large granules;
  • balanced composition of the most important elements for crops, can be used for any crops at all stages of growth;
  • with proper introduction does not contribute to the accumulation of nitrates;
  • economical consumption of fertilizer due to the high concentration of elements in the composition;
  • the ability of nitrogen and potassium will completely dissolve in water;
  • a large percentage of the decomposition of elements in the ground;
  • easily and quickly absorbed by the roots seedlings when entering into the soil;
  • can be used on any soils, namely on sandy, acidic, neutral;
  • the nitrogen content of potassium and phosphorus in equal proportions in each granule;
  • the composition retains flowability for a long time, it does not crumple.
Nitrophoska is well soluble in water and easily absorbed by the roots of the plant.


  • nitrogen in the composition quickly disappears when opening the package;
  • in the period of fruit ripening, the concentration of potassium and phosphorus in this fertilizer will not be enough for vegetables and fruit plants. It is necessary to additionally use potash-phosphorus mixtures.

Instructions for use of fertilizer in open ground

Nitrofoskoy can feed all the plants.

According to the instructions, it can be applied to the soil. dry or liquid. It can be used at all stages of crop development. Also recommended the introduction of nitrophoska into the soil before digging in the fall and spring.

For adult shrubs and trees, dry nitrophening is recommended in the soil by mixing. This should be done in the spring. Nitrogen in the mixture quickly evaporates and is washed away by groundwater over the winter. Consider the use of top dressing for some crops.

For tomatoes

For tomatoes, it is better to use phosphoric nitrophoska. The first dressing - dry introduction into the hole when planting in open ground. Application rate - 1 tablespoon per well. Water each bush with diluted fertilizer - 5g per 1 liter of water.

For tomatoes it is better to use phosphoric nitrophoska

The second feeding recommended after 14 days in the same proportion. The third application of top dressing to organize in the period of budding. Application rates are the same.


Recommended for cucumbers sulphate nitrophos. For them, this fertilizer is required two times less than for tomatoes.

Consumption rate for one bush - 1 teaspoon dry fertilizer or 3g per liter of water. Top-feeding time - when planting seedlings in the soil, before flowering and in the mass fruit set.


For potatoes it is better to apply phosphoric nitrophoska when digging the soil in the fall. Consumption rate - 35g on sq.m. When adding fertilizer to the well, the consumption rate is 5g per hole.

Fertilizer particles should be well mixed with the ground so that they do not come into contact with potato tubers.
For potato nitrophoska need to mix with the ground when making

Strawberries and flowering plants

For strawberries before planting seedlings need to make 40 - 45g in every landing hole. The following feeding is needed after the first harvest. 1 tablespoon need to dilute in 10 liters of water and pour strawberry bushes under the root.

For flowering and decorative leafy plants use sulfate nitrophosphatecontaining calcium. These plants fertilize 3-4 times per season with a ready-made solution at the rate of 30 grams per 10 liters of water.

When adding nitrophoska in the landing hole in a dry form it is necessary mix well with the ground. And only then immerse in the hole tubers, bulbs, cuttings with an open root system. Otherwise there is a chance to burn and spoil the planting material.

Security measures when making Nitroammofoski

Refers to highly flammable and explosive substances. Therefore, do not store or work with fertilizer near an open flame.

When working with fertilizer, it is imperative to use protective agents.

To store means in the places inaccessible to children and animals, with humidity of the room no more than 50%. During work with the drug wear mask rubber gloves. After contact with fertilizer, wash all exposed areas of the body with soap and water.

In case of accidental ingestion of fertilizer in the stomach, drink water, induce vomiting and take activated carbon. Immediately contact the ambulance.

Can I use with other drugs

  • compatible with ammonium sulfate, ammonium phosphate, ammonium nitrate, calcium and potassium nitrate;
  • not compatible with ashes and organic fertilizers, chicken manure, manure and Bordeaux mixture.

Bordeaux mixture categorically can not be mixed with any drugs and fertilizers. Alkaline environment Bordeaux liquid destroys all the beneficial properties of drugs.

Thus, nitroammofoska and nitrophoska - complex fertilizer with a balanced composition. It is able to almost completely satisfy the need of vegetables, trees and flowers in obtaining the desired elements during the growing season, flowering, fruiting. She is still the most popular dressing from private gardeners and large farms.
