Formulating the right fertilizer strategy to apply for targeted, balanced crop nutrition is made easier with the online Nutrient Convertor Calculator from ICL Fertilizers.
The nutrient content of fertilizer can be declared in two different forms: oxide or elemental. Different parts of the world use different units of measurement: pounds per acre (traditional systems of weights and measures) or kilograms per hectare (metric). As a result, interpreting what the nutrient composition of a product is or calculating reliably the rate of fertilizer to apply can be a complex process.
To help bring clarity and convenience to these important nutrient calculations ICL Fertilizers has developed the Nutrition Convertor Calculator. Choose key crop nutrients – potassium, phosphorus, sulphur, nitrogen, calcium and more – and there is an instant conversion from oxide to elemental or vice versa. There is also a useful conversion between metric and the traditional systems of weights and measures for application rates.
According to Tamir Richker, FertilizerpluS Marketing Products Manager at ICL Group, the calculator means that farmers and crop nutrition advisors can quickly and easily achieve precise crop nutrition. “For example, when importing fertilizers from Europe to the US, using the new calculator means a farmer can easily convert the nutrients between oxide and elemental form and also interpret correctly the rate of application.”
