NPK Specialists anyone?


Good day all,

I hope you are all well. I came across this website after stumbling around for the last week trying to figure something out and was wondering if I could post a question to the experts. I come from a farming country where there are many row crops grown. In my country there are two main fertilizer blends that are offered -:

NPK 6:23:23 Cereal Blend
NPK 6:28:28 Cereal Blend

I have attached two sheets with the blend properties. This blend of Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorous in this quantity seems to be only propriety to this country. I cannot for the life of me find any other country that produces nor uses this blend. I do understand that to use any type of fertilizer is dependent on soil type and analysis of the soil in question but my main question is this -

Is there any other blend that could be used that is similar in nature or as close to the 6:23:23 or 6:28:28 blend that is currently offered locally for row crops?

Would really appreciate your valued input.

Thank you

Have a good look at this web site which is funded by British farmers. You will find downloads that cover various crops and soil nutrient indexes. It may be the case that it is limited to UK viewing, in which case you will need a VPN [virtual private network such as NordVPN] in order to access it.

Not an expert, but compound D 7:14:7 or DD 14:28:14 was the basal compound of choice for cereals 20 years ago in Zimbabwe. Soils requiring higher Potash would use the blends you mentioned.
