Fertilizer Focus’ May/June Issue Features Arkema-ArrMaz’s Insights into Tackling Fertilizer Challenges with Innovative Coating Technologies
May 18, 2020
The fertilizer world is getting progressively more complex, especially with increasing demand for the food needed to support a growing global population. Better-performing fertilizer is needed to meet this demand, requiring a greater understanding of fertilizer composition, nutrient life cycles, and their impact on crop yields and the environment in order to optimize fertilizer performance.
In the May/June issue of Fertilizer Focus, Lucas R. Moore, Director of Coating Technologies, explains how today’s innovative coating technologies offer practical solutions to these fertilizer challenges including:
Reduction in the dust generation tendencies of fertilizer
Improved flowability of fertilizer by reducing fertilizer agglomeration (caking) tendencies
Maintenance of granule integrity through reductions in fertilizer moisture absorption
Control and homogeneity of micronutrient concentrations for the broadest range of substrates and substrate blends
Control of the fertilizer dissolution profile
Controlled nutrient/micronutrient profile by crop and by environment
Coloring solutions to differentiate fertilizer products and satisfy market requirements.
