Fertilization recommendations

Advice from our experts who can help you

In the process of selecting an adequate nutrient for crops and plantings of various plant species, our experts are always at the disposal of agricultural producers.

By choosing products from the range of Elixir Zorka mineral fertilizers, based on the analysis of the soil and the needs of the crops/plantings, agricultural producers enable the cultivated plants to have a balanced growth and development, as well as stable and high yields.

In order to become better acquainted with the application of mineral fertilizers, our agronomists have singled out the most commonly grown plant species in various branches of plant production. Within each type, there is a description of fertilization technology, as well as recommendations for the application of mineral fertilizers, which, due to their content, influence the proper growth and development of plants.


Grape vines belong to the group of plants that have an increased need for potassium (K) as one of the basic elements.


When fertilizing young plants, it is important to provide harmonious nutrition, so that the plants develop properly and grow until full fruit bearing, and special emphasis should be given to nitrogen (N) in these early stages.


For the successful production of potatoes, the balance of mineral nutrients in the soil is very important. High yields cannot be achieved on plots where certain mineral elements are missing


Experiences in crop farming have shown that good results in the production of cereal grains are achieved using NP and NPK formulations with emphasized phosphorus (P).


Raspberry is a plant that requires the most potassium (K) during flowering, fruit formation and fruit development. Therefore, fruit bearing raspberry plantations need to be fertilized every year with NPK fertilizers that have an emphasis on potassium (K).


From the point of view of applying nutrients to onions, the greatest needs are in potassium (K) and nitrogen (N), and slightly less in phosphorus (P), therefore, accordingly, you should choose formulations that have an emphasis on potassium (K) and that contain sulfur (S)


The production range of the Elixir Zorka mineral fertilizer factory includes a range of different formulations that meet the requirements of corn production due to their ratio of nutritious elements.


Strawberries, like raspberries, require the most potassium (K) during flowering, fruit formation and fruit development, and they need to be fertilized with formulations that emphasize this very element.


Intensive production and good yields of garlic require timely and high-quality execution of all agrotechnical measures. The needs of garlic in nutrients are mostly related to nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) and somewhat less to phosphorus (P).


Sunflower belongs to plants with an increased demand for potassium, so the production technology should include some of the formulations that have a higher proportion of potassium (K).


During the exploitation period, blueberries require the application of mineral fertilizers with an emphasis on potassium (K). The fact that blueberry belongs to the group of plants sensitive to chlorine (Cl), indicates the need to use potassium in sulfate form.


Increased requirements for potassium (K) also determine the choice of formulation that should be applied in the production of watermelons.


Adequate nutrient balancing in the soil is very important for the successful production of soybeans, where stable and high yields cannot be expected without the appropriate application of complex mineral fertilizers.

Sour cherry

In the phase before planting sour cherry trees, potassium (K) and phosphorus (P) should be introduced in sufficient quantities based on agrochemical analyses. While by applying basic fertilizers in the fruit bearing period, we maintain their nutrient content in the soil.


In the initial stages, it consumes smaller amounts of nutrients in order to intensify them in the later stages of growth and development. By yield, this plant species absorbs the most potassium (K) and nitrogen (N), while the need for phosphorus (P) is less.

Sugar beet

Sugar beet belongs to plants with an increased demand for potassium and is a big consumer of nutrients. In practice, various NPK formulations with an increased proportion of potassium (K) or PK formulations with a certain ratio of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are used.


Tomatoes, like most vegetable crops, require the most potassium (K) of all macroelements. Its consumption is most intense during the intense growth of the plant, flowering, fruit formation and fruit development


One of the basic prerequisites for achieving stable and high yields of rapeseed is balanced nutrition with mineral fertilizers with an emphasis on nitrogen (N) in the stages from the initial spring growth to flowering.


Paprika, as a vegetable plant species, requires potassium (K) the most out of all macroelements. Its consumption is most intensive during flowering, fruit formation and fruit development


Soil analysis is the basis for proper tobacco nutrition. The use of mineral fertilizers with an optimal content of phosphorus (P) and an emphasized content of potassium (K) in the form of sulfate have shown excellent results.


The emphasis in the needs is certainly on potassium (K) and nitrogen (N), which are important for the quality and yield of the roots. While the need for phosphorus (P) is slightly less, it is also important for proper root development.


Bean plants need nitrogen from the soil, that is, from fertilizers, at the beginning of the growing season until nodules are formed on the roots. Also, the presence of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), which are absorbed most intensively in the flowering phase, is very significant.


Cabbage has high nutrient requirements considering the large amount of vegetative mass and the yields it achieves. In addition to nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), sulfur (S) also plays a major role in metabolism.


In addition to nitrogen (N), potassium (K) is another key element in the production of this vegetable species, because it affects the transport of carbohydrates and increases the tolerance of eggplant to stressful conditions in the external environment.


Nitrogen (N) is an element that certainly has a dominant influence on the cucumber yield, but the presence of sufficient amounts of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) is necessary for the development of key physiological processes that affect the final yield and quality

Choose the branch of agriculture

Proper growth and development of plants require a balanced blend of nutrients present in the soil. Elixir Zorka’s complex mineral fertilizers are characterized by high concentrations of essential nutrients, uniform granulation, and high water solubility in the soil.
