Green Quarter is one of the leading suppliers and producers of Bioorganic fertilizers in India and United Arab Emirates. We help farmers manage yields, ensure farm profitably and keep their land fertile and healthy. Plant mineral nutrition systems developed by GQ rely on rational application of fertilizers produced from the unique, purest natural source. We make every effort to increase crop quality and yield, and keep soils fertile, clean and healthy for the future generations. This is our primary objective at every stage of value creation: we manufacture organic fertilizers in our plant located in India, Mysore and by continuous improvement in our production technologies, ensure reliable supply to our distribution channels, develop additional services, invest into our own distribution network,engage partners in joint field trials of our products, and provide agronomic support to consumers of mineral fertilizers. We also develop educational programmes, seek to preserve and restore soil fertility, raise awareness about sustainable agriculture and promote organic fertilizer application to keep soils fertile and our goal is to keep the planet clean and people healthy and do its best to achieve this.
Any plant absorbs mineral compounds from soil, air and water, and converts them into organic compounds that become building blocks for all parts of its organism. Plant growth and crop yields depend on availability of nutrients and amounts of water. The main principles of organic fertilizer application for individual fields include: selecting the fertilizer type, and timing, dosage and method of application. Approaches to developing individualized fertilization plans for each farm may be deemed “best practices” only as long as all agronomic and resource-saving techniques are properly assessed and selected within the framework of rational cropping.
Why do You Need Fertilizers?
Why do you need fertilizers for gardening or farming? Do plants not grow in the wild without any fertilizers? The answer to this question lies in the fact that you only want specific species of plants to grow on a farm or a garden.Soil, on farms as well as the wild, has nutrients in it. However, the proportion of minerals is different in different places. Within a field, the nutrient content is similarly not uniform. In the wild, plants that are most suitable to the soil and other conditions grow and you don’t have any control over their growth. However, since you want to grow only your favored variety of plants in your garden or farm, you need to add nutrients according to the needs of that variety and availability in your soil. Moreover, in a partially covered piece of land, such as a farm, the soil nutrients are taken up by the plants but are not replenished when the plants or their leaves die, because you remove them as food, herbs, etc. Hence you require fertilizers to enrich the nutrient-deficient soil and create artificial conditions for higher productivity of the plants.What are these nutrients required by plants? The most commonly required plant nutrients are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K).  Almost all fertilizers are categorized according to their Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium or N-P-K value.  Nitrogen is required for the growth of vegetative parts such as the stems and the leaves, while your plants will have healthy roots if they get a sufficient amount of phosphorus.  Phosphorus is also required for good flowers and fruits. Potassium makes the plant healthy by facilitating the circulation of nutrients within the plant.In addition to N-P-K, plants also require other nutrients, such as calcium and magnesium. Since these are required in small quantities, you need not to add them separately unless in exceptional cases, if your soil is totally devoid of these minerals or the crop you wish to grow requires them in large quantities.
How to Apply Fertilizers?
Farmers have the conception that adding large quantities of fertilizers in their farms will only be beneficial to their plants. However, according to The Royal Horticultural Society, since fertilizers are substances that are rich in nutrients, they are meant to be added in small quantities. The society suggests the following points for fertilizer application:Soil Analysis: A thorough analysis of the soil should be conducted before planting the crops. You should first find out the existing nutrient content of your soil, find out the nutrient requirement of the plants you want to grow, and add fertilizers based on the nutrient deficiency between the two. A typical soil analysis test will determine the soil texture, organic matter content, and pH. It will also give you the content of different minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium. Some soil test labs also determine the micro-organic activity in your soil.Time of Application: The time when you apply the fertilizers is also crucial. In cold climates, fertilizers should not be applied during winter and autumn, as they will favor young growth during the winter. Since the weather is harsh during this time, the plants won’t be able to survive for long. Therefore, fertilizers should only be applied during the spring. In fact, the time for adding the fertilizers and preparation of the crop should be quite close. The quantity of Fertilizers: Society suggests that if a farmer is in doubt about the quantity of fertilizer to be added, he should add less fertilizer to be on the safe side.Organic Fertilizers: It is also suggested that farmers prefer organic fertilizers to chemical fertilizers.Global awareness for the hazards of long-term chemical fertilizer use is growing. Because of this, more and more farmers all over the world are shifting to organic fertilizers. The agricultural market has also recognized this trend and has recently employed a full-blown campaign to promote organic and natural fertilizers. Among the benefits of using organic fertilizers are non-toxic food, lower cost, better soil fertility, and of course, a safer environment.
