what is nitrogen fertilizer

If you have a question: “What is nitrogen fertilizer?” then here is your answer : “Nitrogen fertilizer is one of the most common nordfert fertilizers.”

Nitrogen makes up more than 78 percent of Earth’s atmosphere and is therefore considered to be a non-renewable natural resource. Without an alternative, we have no choice but to use its finite resources for agriculture.

Nitrogen fertilizers are synthesized through the nitrogen cycle by converting atmospheric N2 gas into NH3 gas via hydrolysis with water, ammonia synthesis from N2 and H3PO4 (phosphoric acid), or chemical reduction of nitrates. Once synthesized it can be applied to soils for increased production in agriculture as well as golf courses for an attractive green color.

Nitrogen fertilizers is one of the most common fertilizer that we use nowadays. Fertilizer is like a food for plants, but nitrogen-based compound is usually the cheapest and most common of them all. The content in nitrogen fertilizers varies depending on what crops are grown, but generally rates around about 26% to 32%. Nitrogen-compound contains several subgroups including urea and ammonium nitrate. This type of fertilizer can only be used on nonlegume crops such as corn because legumed plants can not extract nitrogen by means of eating it from the soil as they would grow if there was no other source.

Nitrogen is a key nutrient that plants need to grow. Nitrogen fertilizers are one of the most common types used to produce nitrogen in order to help plants flourish and grow strong. Common plant-based nitrogen sources include ammonium nitrates, urea, tetra amines, and sodium nitrate or chloride. There are also “synthetic” sources that contain only a single type of nitrogen (such as monoammonium phosphate).
