What is Nano Fertilizer? How does it work in agriculture?

Besides familiar concepts such as organic fertilizers, inorganic fertilizers or micro-fertilizers, nano-fertilizers are still quite unfamiliar to farmers. In fact, fertilizers produced by nanotechnology include macronutrients, intermediates and micronutrients. Specifically nano fertilizer What is the nature and effect in agriculture, let’s follow the article below.

  1. What is nano fertilizer?

In a word, nano fertilizer is a fertilizer produced by nanotechnology. Therefore, to understand the nature of this fertilizer, we first need to understand nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is the use of microscopic particles, measured in nanometers, each nanometer is only 1 millionth of a millimeter. Thus, it can be understood that these are very small particles, not even visible to the naked eye.

Taking advantage of this feature, people apply nanotechnology to produce agricultural fertilizers. The essence of this fertilizer is that it is formed from microscopic particles, so it easily penetrates deep into the parts of the plant.

Specifically, nano-fertilizers are microscopic nanoparticles of iron, calcium, copper, zinc, boron, etc. They are synthesized by chemical reduction method, using environmentally friendly chemicals.

  1. Advantages of nano fertilizer

Thanks to the nature of microscopic trace element particles, nano fertilizer offers many advantages for use in farming:

  • The nano-sized particles in the fertilizer are released nutrients slowly, ensuring that plants are easily absorbed during the growth and development process.
  • Provides many necessary trace elements for plants without harming the ecological environment or human health.
  • Nano fertilizer decomposes nutrients slowly and with control, so it avoids leaching, and avoids wasting fertilizer when used for plants.
  • The natural polymers in nano-fertilizers have good water-holding capacity, so they can both provide nutrients and retain moisture, solving the problem of plants lacking water in the long drought season.
  • The price is soft, suitable for farmers

  1. The effect of nano fertilizer on plants

Although nanotechnology has only been used in agriculture for a few years, it has produced many beneficial products. Typically as:

  • Special insecticides to treat harmful fungi, bacteria that damage plants, anthracnose diseases, pink fungus, rust, anti-yellowing, etc.
  • Fertilizer to stimulate plant growth

In this particular article, we only discuss the effects of nano-fertilizers on plants:

Nano fertilizer for rooting

  • Provide trace elements in complex form for plants
  • Supply nutrients to the soil
  • Balance ions in the soil, improve soil
  • Detoxify soil contaminated with alum, sour, salty, hard
  • Stimulates beneficial microorganisms in the soil
  • Stimulate plants to form roots quickly, set branches, good leaves, promote plants to flower and set fruit
  • Increase yield and quality of crops
  • Suitable for both agricultural and industrial crops

Nano fertilizer for foliar application

  • Strongly attack diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, leaf twisting diseases, leaf wilt, fruit fungus, pink fungus, leaf yellowing, downy mildew, anthracnose, etc.
  • Provides essential trace elements to help stems and leaves thrive
  • Stimulates flowering and fruiting plants
  • Improve yield and quality of seeds, tubers and fruits

  1. How to use nano fertilizer with high efficiency in agriculture

Nano fertilizer has 2 main uses: fertilizing directly around the base of the plant and dissolving with water used to irrigate directly on the leaves. The ratio of mixing with water is 1kg of nano fertilizer mixed with 200-220 liters of water.

You can use this fertilizer to fertilize or fertilize plants according to the following methods:

  • Primer fertilizer: should be applied 3-5 days before soil preparation, evenly distributed on the field surface, or in rows or holes dug up, depending on the type of crop.
  • Top dressing: use root fertilizer or foliar irrigation depending on the purpose the grower wants, depending on the type of tree that should be applied periodically every 15-30 days.
  • Suitable for all types of crops from agricultural crops such as rice, maize, pineapple, etc. to industrial plants such as cotton, tea, coffee, pepper, etc.

Thus, compared to previous fertilizers, nano-fertilizers are somewhat more effective, so they are being widely used. After understanding the essence, people should apply the right time and the right way to help plants grow best!
