Hereby we would like to inform you that our representatives are present at PotatoEurope 2017, held in Emmeloord (the Netherlands) from 13- 14 September. PotatoEurope 2017 is an unique outdoor annual event were the entire potato chain is present. This year the event will take place in World Potato City Emmeloord, the Netherlands. The trade show hosts a numerous of demonstrations, showing how the international potato world is preparing for a sustainable future.
Proposals to ensure a sustainable supply of ‘efficient and environmentally-friendly’ fertilizer products for EU farmers were approved by the EU Agriculture Committee last week. A proposal for new rules, for putting fertilizer products on the EU market, for the Internal Market Committee was approved by the Agriculture Committee. HUMIC liquid fits in this thought.
The world’s demand for agricultural products is continually on the rise. We are ready to help you supply the key fertilizer ingredients to meet this growing demand. Via our strategic location in Ghent Belgium, with very good access to the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp, we provide the most efficient solutions to get your product to your market.
A new report says that global agricultural emissions must be slashed to prevent the planet warming by more than 2C over the next century. The current focus is on reducing emissions from transport and energy. But an international team of scientists argues that if farm-related emissions aren't tackled then the Paris climate targets will be breached.
Some compounds added to urea or urea-containing fertilizers can reduce the rate of the first “hydrolysis” step, and slow the rate of ammonia production. Urease inhibitors are used to temporarily reduce the activity of the enzyme and slow the rate at which urea is hydrolyzed. This can help reduce ammonia loss to the atmosphere.
When you buy or sell fertilizers across national boundaries, you and the Triferto must have a clear understanding of the terms for moving those goods to their destination. CIF and FOB are commonly used agreement models for international container shipping of fertilizers. Each type of agreement specifies which party is responsible for the goods and the point at which responsibility transfers from the seller to the buyer.
In agriculture various greenhouse gases are released. The most important being CO2, methane and nitrous oxide. The principal sources of greenhouse gases in agriculture and horticulture are livestock farming and greenhouse horticulture. Climate change continues to happen but the adverse effects of this appear containable in the Netherlands. At policy level there is a lot of focus on the effects of climate change, and Triferto is also working on this by investing in innovative fertilizers which reduce emissions.
Every soil contains the enzyme urease. As soon as urea is applied this enzyme breaks down urea into ammonium and OH-. Because of this process there is a localised increase in the pH to pH 9.5! At this pH level, part of the ammonium formed is converted into ammonia which volatilises. This delivers on average a nitrogen loss of 26%!
Standards mean that phosphate fertilization is restricted for a grower. This is awkward because it is precisely the yield from shallow rooting crops which respond favourably to a plentiful supply of fresh phosphate. The plentiful supply of manure/fertilizer also makes it an attractive option for covering the requirement for organic matter and other nutrients using this manure/fertilizer as far as possible. Here are some of our own practical tips.
Farmers have always been concerned about the fertility of their land; however, the very notion of fertility has evolved over the years. The focus on increased yield led to the development of intensive production methods. Farmers are well aware that humus is ensuring the good health of their land.
Nitrogen compounds are subject to constant transformation and leaching processes in the soil. The optimal adaptation of nitrogen fertilizers to the current needs of plants is a key success factor for yields and quality.
With ENTEC fertilizers, the transformation of ammonium nitrogen into nitrate is delayed. The release of nitrogen is thus adapted to the plant’s needs and the fertilizer functions more efficiently.
Humus compounds are complex natural organic compounds that are formed in soils from plant residues, by a process of "humification". Humus materials are complex aggregate of brown to dark colored amorphous substances, which have originated during the decomposition of plant and animal residues by microorganisms, under aerobic and anaerobic conditions, in soils, composts, peat bogs, and water basins.
