Application of ammonium chloride granular fertilizer

Ammonium chloride particles are made by extruding fertilizer manufacturing process, which are highly soluble in water, easily hygroscopic in air, and do not agglomerate. The main use of ammonium chloride is as a source of nitrogen. It is the same as ammonium sulfate in fertilizer. It is used as a base material and topdressing. It cannot be used for sowing. It is suitable for rice and wheat in Asia.

Application of ammonium chloride granular fertilizer

Ammonium chloride contains chloride ion, so it is not suitable to be used in fluorine resistant crops. If it is used in sweet potato, potato, beet, grape, melon and other starch and sugar crops, it will reduce the starch and sugar content; if it is used in tobacco, it will reduce the combustibility of tobacco and affect the quality; tea is also very sensitive to chloride ion, which is easy to produce toxicity and affect the quality.

Ammonium chloride, as an available nitrogen fertilizer, is suitable for wheat, rice, corn, rape and other crops, especially for cotton and hemp crops, which can enhance fiber toughness and tensile strength and improve quality. Double roller fertilizer granulator is very suitable for processing this kind of fertilizer particles. Under normal temperature, the powder is extruded to form particles, and the fertilizer raw materials are made into ammonium chloride. The roller press granulator plays an important role in the granulation of compound fertilizer and other raw materials.

Characteristics of ammonium chloride granular fertilizer

1. Ammonium chloride, nitrogen content is 24% - 25%. Chloride ion can inhibit nitrifying bacteria, slow down nitrification and reduce nitrogen loss. It is better to apply ammonium chloride in humid area than ammonium sulfate.

2. Ammonium chloride is not conducive to germination and seeding growth, and is not suitable for tea tolerant crops, such as tea, tobacco, grapes, etc.

3. When ammonium chloride is applied to soil, because of substitution, chloride has greater solubility than sulfate, and sulfate is more likely to lose. For ammonium chloride, the loss of Ca and the decrease of pH value in soil are more serious, and the physical properties of soil will become worse.

4. Ammonium chloride is suitable for acid and calcareous soil, but not for saline soil, because chloride ion will increase the damage to the soil.

Ammonium chloride granular fertilizer has significant effect on some crops, and the fertilizer manufacturing process is simple. A NPK fertilizer production process can process a variety of raw materials to make different special fertilizer, which is suitable for the production projects of fertilizer plants.
