Grapevine fertilization recommendations

The production of grapevine requires regular application of mineral fertilizers, which ensures a good yield and quality of grapes

Depending on the type of soil, weather conditions, as well as the type and age of the vineyard, then the planned annual production and analysis of the land, it is possible to calculate the needs of vine plants for certain nutrients. In order to achieve the target yield, it is necessary to apply organic and mineral fertilizers regularly.

Grapevines belong to the group of plants with an increased need for potassium (K) as one of the basic elements. It is extremely important to note that the grapevine is one of the plants whose yield and quality largely depend on the use of fertilizers based on potassium sulfate (SOP).

Basic fertilizing of vineyards with NPK fertilizers is best done in the autumn, after harvest, because then the vineyard is cultivated more deeply, so nutrients from mineral fertilizers reach the deeper layers of the soil. The grapevine is a large consumer of potassium (K), which has a positive effect on the accumulation of sugar in the grape berries, increasing resistance to drought, fungal infections, mechanical pressure and winter frostbite. Elixir Zorka’s production range includes a range of different formulations of fertilizers for autumn and spring application, which, with their respective nutritional elements and quality, fully meet the requirements of grapevine production.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for vineyards?

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 vineyards implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of grapevine 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.
