Blueberry fertilization recommendations

By fertilizing blueberries, a balanced and precise nutrition must be provided, which should ensure good vegetative growth and full bearing

When planning to raise a blueberry plantation, it has an extremely long fruit-bearing period, even over 15 years. Large vegetative mass and relatively high yield of blueberry additionally requires adequate amounts of nutrients for normal growth and development.

The application of certain amounts of fertilizers and the choice of formulations should be adapted to agrochemical analyses of both the soil and the leaves, as well as the planned yield and assortment of cultivated species.

The specificity of the production is the blueberry’s requirement for an acidic medium (pH below 5). Planting should be thoroughly planned along with land analysis and planning of meliorative fertilization. Ameliorative fertilization, i.e. the so-called stock fertilization refers primarily to the introduction of adequate amounts of potassium (K) and phosphorus (P) before planting. At this stage, it would be good to plan the introduction of organic fertilizers.

The mineral fertilizer AmoSulfan should be singled out from the product range, which by its chemical composition is ammonium sulfate, which also represents an excellent solution in the nutrition of this profitable fruit-growing plant species.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for blueberry 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 blueberry plantations implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of blueberry 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.
