Application and Benefits of DAP 18:46:0

  • Nitrogen and Phosphorus ratio are best suited for Pulse and Oilseed crops;
  • Increases flower number and fruit setting, thereby improves the crop quality and yield;
  • The NP ratio of 1:2.5 is a scientific combination for basal application to all crops and both the nutrients are chemically combined and interaction is synergistic;
  • Highly soluble, quickly dissolves in soil to release plant-available phosphate and ammonium;
  • Ammonical form helps in releasing the micronutrients (Zn, Fe, Cu & Mn) from soil and thus making it easily available for crop uptake;
  • Band application is recommended for more efficient use of P.
