Apple fertilization recommendations

Nitrogen (N) is the carrier of yield, phosphorus (P) has a positive effect on the development of generative organs, while potassium (K) plays an important role in achieving good color and taste of apple fruits

Successful apple production, in addition to other technical measures, largely depends on the adequate application of mineral fertilizers, that is, proper nutrition. Determining the amount of nutrients to be introduced should be based on agrochemical analyses that provide us with basic information about the properties of the soil and the content of nutrients in it.

The application of mineral fertilizers in full fruit bearing plantations should be designed so that in the autumn period, formulations with a higher content of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) and a smaller proportion of nitrogen (N) are used. Supreme formulations from Elixir Zorka’s product range are the ideal choice for apple fertilization. These products are characterized by high water solubility of all elements and their easy accessibility to the plant, which is very important, especially in early spring applications.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for apple plantations?

NPK 6:12:24

The product NPK 6:12:24 + 6% S in terms of its ratio of nutrients represents a well-balanced formulation for achieving high and stable yields of all cultivated plants that have an increased need for potassium (K)


AmoSulfan belongs to the category of nitrogen fertilizers. It is extremely suitable for feeding all types of plants. The use of AmoSulfan significantly improves the availability and uptake of phosphorus on alkaline and neutral soils

NutriVeg NPK 10:10:20

NutriVeg NPK 10:10:20 +2% MgO +9% S +0.2% B +0.1% Zn is a complex, solid mineral fertilizer, the application of which provides complete nutrition to cultivated plants with all necessary macro and microelements during the production process cycle

NPK 12:11:18

The product NPK 12:11:18 + 2% MgO + 15% S + 0.01% B + 0.02% Zn + TE is a complex, solid mineral fertilizer of superior quality, which is primarily used for the production of highly profitable fruit and vegetable crops

NPK 12:12:17

The product NPK 12:12:17+ 2% Mg + 14% S + 0.02% B + 0.01% Zn provides balanced nutrition for a large number of plant species. Carefully selected secondary macro and microelements ensure high yields and exceptional product quality

Spring fertilization of apple plantations implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of apple yield

Proizvodi Elixir Group

Amosulfan 20% N + 24% S

AmoSulfan contains nitrogen in ammoniacal form.

This form of nitrogen binds more easily and is more difficult to wash out from the soil profile, which makes it available to plants for a longer period of time. Sulfur, as the main macroelement, directly affects the increase in the quality of cereal grains, because it participates in protein synthesis.
