Watermelon fertilization recommendations

The uptake of nutrients by watermelon is intensive, therefore, for normal growth and development, as well as a good yield, it is necessary to provide sufficient amounts of the same

For the successful production of watermelons, for normal growth and development, as well as a good yield, large amounts of nutrients are required. In addition to requiring large amounts of mineral fertilizers, watermelon nutrition must also be adequately balanced.

Emphasized requirements for potassium (K) also determine the choice of formulation to be applied in the production of watermelons. When making a decision, it should also be borne in mind that watermelons are plants that are sensitive to the presence of chlorine (Cl), especially if fertilizers are applied immediately before starting production.

The Elixir Zorka production program has several formulations that are an excellent solution for application in the production of watermelons. We especially highlight the SUPREME line of premium quality mineral fertilizers, which contain potassium (K) in the form of potassium sulfate (SOP).

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for the watermelon crop

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 +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 + 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

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 watermelon implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of watermelon 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.
