Raspberry fertilization recommendations

Raspberries are classified as plants with increased potassium requirements, and the greatest need for this element is during flowering, fruit growing and fruit development.

Raspberries are among the most economically important types of berry fruit in the world and of all berry fruit trees, they take the largest amount of nutrients from the soil. The high requirements for nutrients arise from the fact that the raspberry develops a large number of new shoots every year, while a high crop is formed on the old shoots.

According to the method of application and the type of fertilizer, the mineral nutrition of fruit bearing raspberry plantations can consist of basic fertilization, nitrogen (N) supplementation, supplementary fertilization with a drop-by-drop system (where possible) and fertilization with foliar fertilizers.

Of the basic macroelements, raspberries absorb the most potassium (K), followed by nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).

For successful raspberry fertilization Elixir Zorka recommends several formulations from the highest quality SUPREME product line.

These superior complex mineral fertilizers enable the achievement of high, stable and high-quality raspberry yields.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for raspberry 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)

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 raspberry plantations implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of raspberry 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.
