Tobacco fertilization recommendations

Potassium (K) plays a key role in leaf quality and tobacco yield, in the form of sulfate (SOP)

The basis for proper nutrition of tobacco is an agrochemical analysis of the soil, on the basis of which the type and amount of fertilizer is determined. Mineral fertilizers, without nitrogen content (N), with an optimal content of phosphorus (P) and a higher proportion of potassium (K) have shown excellent results in production.

The recommended amount of nutrients depends on the type and variety of tobacco, climate, soil type and agrotechnical measures.

All three basic elements nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are needed for the growth and development of the tobacco plant, however, potassium (K) has the greatest importance, which affects the quality of the tobacco leaf and the yield.

The latest SUPREME production line of fertilizers based on potassium sulfate (SOP) from the Elixir Zorka plant includes several formulations suitable for tobacco production.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for tobacco production

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

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

The product PK 15:30 + 11% S is a complex, solid mineral fertilizer suitable for growing all types of plants with an emphasis on phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) needs

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

Proizvodi Elixir Group

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.
