Corn fertilization recommendations

Out of the total adopted amount of phosphorus (P), corn takes more than 70% of the phosphorus from the soil by the agricultural yield.

Serious corn production requires quality and timely performance of all agrotechnical measures, which are necessary to ensure high and stable production. Among the agrotechnical measures, attention should be paid to proper fertilizing, i.e. the introduction of nutrients, which should ensure proper growth and development of plants. It is very important to do soil analyses in order to have accurate information about the required amount of nutrients that should be applied. The quantities of individual nutrients and their ratio result from the level of soil fertility and the amount of nutrients that are taken out from the soil by the yield.

The system of application of mineral fertilizers in the corn crop should be connected with the processing system, sowing structure, fertilization for the pre-crop, selection of hybrids, but also with plowing of crop residues.

The production range of the Elixir Zorka mineral fertilizer factory includes a range of different formulations that match the requirements of corn production with their ratio of nutrients. The most pronounced requirements of this plant species are nitrogen (N) and potassium (K), but phosphorus (P) plays a key role in the formation of a high yield in addition to nitrogen.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for the corn crop?

NPK 8:15:15

The product NPK 8:15:15 + 3% Ca + 9% S is used in the fertilization of a large number of plant species due to the uniform ratio of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). It is characterized by good solubility and accessibility of phosphorus (P) during the vegetation period

NPK 6:24:12

The product NPK 6:24:12 + 5% S + 2% Ca + 0.05% Zn. In addition to the emphasized content of phosphorus (P), it also contains the secondary macroelements sulfur (S) and calcium (Ca), as well as the microelement zinc (Zn), the presence of which affects numerous physiological processes in plants.


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

NutriBOOST NP 10:45

NutriBOOST NP 10:45 + 5% S + 1% Zn is a new generation microgranulated fertilizer with a special additive that protects phosphorus (P) from blocking in the soil, preventing its reaction with other elements such as Ca, Al and Fe

NutriBOOST NP 10:45

By applying NutriBOOST fertilizer, phosphorus is protected.

Phosphorus is very important for fertilization processes in plants as well as for good rooting and strengthening of the root system. Nitrogen (N), which is used independently of other macroelements in the corn crop, should include formulations with a higher proportion of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in the production technology.
