As a liquid fertiliser with a particularly favorable combination of the nitrogen forms nitrate, ammonium and urea nitrogen, PIASAN® 28 offers a range of plant cultivation and economic advantages.
PIASAN® 28 can be used in all agricultural crops. It is easy to handle and even the smallest quantities of nitrogen can be dosed precisely. Fertilisation can be made more efficient as a result of large application widths and the combined application with plant protection agents, micro nutrients and growth regulators. In addition, nitrogen uptake with PIASAN® 28 can also occur via the leaf. This makes better yields possible, particularly under dry weather conditions. PIASAN® 28 achieves yields which are at least comparable to solid fertilisers and mostly even higher.
Spreading errors are stress on the nerves and they cost money. They are not initially perceptible up to a magnitude of 25 % but they can lead to noticeable loss of yield. Liquid fertilisers can display their strengths when accuracy is crucial. With PIASAN® 28 it is easier to adhere to the distance requirements of the Fertilisation Ordinance. The very precise fertiliser application guarantees the full fertiliser quantity and thus yield right up to the edge. The reason for this is the small coefficient of variation for liquid fertilisation of an average of just 3.4 %.
For liquid fertilisation with nitrogen, a large proportion of the nutrients – 80 to 95 % – will be absorbed via the soil. Only 5 to 20 % of the N-uptake occurs via the leaf.
A high level of plant compatibility is only guaranteed with liquid fertilisers in brand quality. That in turn is the pre-requisite for high yields and good harvest quality. Liquid fertilisers of unknown origin and low surface tension can lead to leaf necrosis, thereby reducing the potential yield. PIASAN® 28 has a very high surface tension of 60 – 80 mN/m. The pH value of PIASAN® 28 is in the neutral range between 6 – 7. Storage life is guaranteed even at freezing temperatures – crystallisation only starts at -17 °C.
The creation of coarse drops succeeds thanks to the use of anti-drift nozzles (ADN) with a low spray pressure (approx. 2 bar). A coarse drop spectrum is thus achieved.
Special liquid fertiliser- (LF) or multi-hole nozzles should preferably be used under critical conditions in order to apply the liquid fertiliser in a “rain” formation even in large quantities.
The yield can be increased considerably by using the high-quality liquid fertiliser PIASAN® 28. This is a decisive criterion for liquid fertilisers with low surface tension.
A high level of surface tension ensures a high level of plant compatibility.
Fertilisation with PIASAN® 28 leads to considerably higher yields with the same raw protein content.
PIASAN® 28 can be used in all agricultural crops. A few principles must be observed for the application of liquid fertilisers on cereal and rapeseed crop formations:
PIASAN® 28 can be applied evenly, with precise dosage and right up to the edge with customary plant protection technology. All nozzles are well suited for the start of spring growth or at sowing. The following applies for fertilisation in crop formations: The drops should be proportionately greater for more sensitive plants and the spray pressure lower. The choice of nozzle can have a decisive effect on the plant compatibility. We recommend anti-drift or multi-hole nozzles from the second application in cereals or oilseed rape.
The use of drag hoses or pipes is recommended for later application and generally following ear emergence, for unfavorable weather conditions or in sensitive cultures. The choice of nozzle must ensure the effectiveness of the combination partners for the combined use of PIASAN® 28, with plant protection agents in particular. Anti-drift nozzles will preferably be considered here while taking heed of legal requirements.
With PIASAN® 28 you are making use of the advantages of liquid fertilisation in brand quality. In addition to optimal product characteristics, the selection of the correct application technique in different fertilisation periods must also be given sufficient attention. The following fertilisation recommendation is based on the results of our applied research and practical experience.
You should adapt these to the local conditions and the plant requirement established in line with the Fertilisation Ordinance. If you have any questions concerning the appropriate use of PIASAN® 28 you can contact our specialist advisers at any time or consult www.duengerfuchs.de.
