Global Controlled Release Fertilizers Market, By Type (Controlled Release Organic Fertilizers, Contr

Published Date: | Report Code : FA1958503


The Controlled Release Fertilizers Market is predicted to witness significant demand during the forecast period owing to it’s increasing use in various applications such as cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and others.

A controlled-release fertilizer is a granulated compost that discharges nutrients slowly into the soil. The gradualness of the discharge is controlled by the low solubility of the chemical compounds in the soil moisture. Since ordinary fertilizers are soluble in water, the nutrients can scatter rapidly as the fertilizer dissolves. Since controlled-release fertilizers are not water-solvent, their nutrients scatter into the soil more gradually. The fertilizer granules may have an insoluble substrate or a semi-permeable coat that prevents dissolution while enabling nutrients to flow outward.

Controlled release fertilizers helps to improve proficiency, increase crop yield, and reduce potential losses to the environment. They provide several advantages such as saving fertilizer quantity and labor since a single application is required for the growing season and improve soil quality and germination rates. Moreover, they restrain nutrient loss, seed toxicity and hazardous emissions.

Global controlled release fertilizers market is growing with the increasing efforts towards sustainable agriculture. Also, rapidly expanding population globally will boost the demand for global controlled release fertilizers market. Additionally, rising awareness among consumers regarding the negative impact caused by consuming cheap quality food, and also food safety is convincing farmers to extensively use controlled release fertilizers.
