Natural Chilean Nitrate is a natural fertilizer containing 16% nitrogen (N). It is the only natural source of nitrate N.
The sole use of traditional organic N sources is insufficient to obtain acceptable crop production in terms of yield and sometimes even quality. Sub-optimal quantities of available N released by soil microorganisms and its lack of synchronization with the uptake of growing crops are the main reasons for these un-satisfactory results.
Because Natural Chilean Nitrate has an available form of N, it is a complement to organic N sources that need time and favorable ecological conditions to be transformed by soil microorganisms. By synchronizing soil N availability with plant needs, Natural Chilean Nitrate contributes to optimal qualitative yield.
