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)
Cucumber fertilization recommendations
Application of mineral fertilizers in cucumber production should be coordinated with planned yields and needs, agrochemical soil analysis, technology and production conditions
Cucumber has a weakly developed root system, which penetrates the soil very shallowly from 5 to 20 cm, so deep humus, raster soils, neutral or slightly acidic reactions are best for its cultivation. Due to its characteristics, special attention should be paid to the basic and preliminary soil cultivation.
Cucumber has increased requirements in terms of basic nutrients. Nitrogen (N) is an element that certainly has a dominant impact on yield.
The presence of sufficient amounts of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) is necessary for the development of key physiological processes that affect photosynthesis, respiration, water balance, plant health, etc. These processes are directly related to the level and quality of realized yields.
Elixir Zorka offers over 20 different NP, PK and NPK formulations that are used in intensive cucumber production. Potassium sulfate-based (SOP) formulations within the latest SUPREME line are especially recommended.
Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for the cucumber crop
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
The product NPK 12:11:18 + 3% MgO + 14% 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
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
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
Spring fertilization of cucumber implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of cucumber yield
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.AmoSulfan
