The unique combination of stabilised nitrogen with sulfur which is effective both immediately and sustainably provides clear added efficiency.
Considerable advantages are gained through the stabilisation of the nitrogen: Fewer part applications are required, application dates can be organised with more variety and nitrogen losses are minimized. If nothing else, the yields and qualities are improved noticeably when compared to conventional fertilisers. The N-efficiency, a significant parameter of the Fertilisation Ordinance, is increased.
The sulfur requirement for agricultural crops varies. Sulfur deficiency can result in problems with the nitrogen uptake. Nitrate cannot be converted as there is a deficiency in the sulfur-containing enzyme nitrate reductase. The nitrogen incorporation in amino acids is thus disturbed and protein formation is inhibited. One kilogram of deficiency in sulfur per hectare can block the uptake of 10 to 15 kg of nitrogen.
ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 combines the advantages of nitrogen stabilisation with the advantages of high nutrient contents with an optimal N/S ratio. ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 has very good plant compatibility thanks to its high surface tension and a pH value in the neutral range. As well as supplying nutrients in line with requirements, nutrient losses are reduced and the environment is spared. The greater flexibility and integration of fertiliser doses relieve workload peaks. ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 can be used universally in all crops.
ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 is the combination of stabilised nitrogen with two forms of sulfur. The sulfate sulfur from the ammonium sulfate can be utilised by the plants immediately. The sulfur from the ammonium thiosulfate on the other hand is converted in the soil in several stages and absorbed by the plants as sulfate sulfur in line with their requirements. Ammonium thiosulfate acts as a pure source of nutrients and it does not have any nitrogen stabilising effect. With a very high surface tension of 60 – 80 mN/m and a pH value of between 6 and 7, ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 has very high plant compatibility.
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.
ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 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 greater for more sensitive plants and the spray pressure should be 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 crops. The choice of nozzle must ensure the effectiveness of the combination partners for the combined use of ALZON® liquid-S 25/6, with plant protection agents in particular. Anti-drift nozzles will preferably be considered here while taking heed of legal requirements.
The stabilisation of the nitrogen leads to particularly sustainable and efficient plant nutrition. The highly efficient nitrification inhibitors in ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 thereby delay the conversion of the nitrogen from stable ammonium into the mobile nitrate form by six to ten weeks. The stabilised nitrogen remains in the top soil area and is available to the plants in ammonium form at all times and protected against leaching into deeper soil layers. Earlier fertilisation dates and the possible combination of part applications, particularly for pre-summer dryness, ensures that sufficient nitrogen is always present in the root area and is available as required and at the correct time regardless of the weather. This results in high yields and good quality.
In the sense of the Fertilisation Ordinance, ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 helps to reduce the risk of nitrate displacement and washout and also nitrous oxide emissions in the event of heavier precipitations. The nitrate displacement can be reduced by up to 50 %. Nitrous oxide emissions are even reduced by up to 75 %.
With ALZON® liquid-S 25/6 you can supply all crops with nitrogen and sulfur evenly. You can also take advantage of stabilised fertilisation and save on crossings. 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. Make sure that you select the correct nozzle for the application. For intensive cereal and oilseed rape cultivation you can use the same quantities as with conventional nitrogen fertilisers. With sugar beet and maize for example it is possible to reduce the quantity of nitrogen by 5 % to a maximum of 10 % without any loss of yield.
