  • Fertilizers

    Yara's core business of nitrogen fertilizer production is intimately connected with agricultural productivity and food production. The role of fertilizers in food production is usually underestimated. Fertilizers are food for plants. Just as we need essential minerals and nutrients for strong, healthy growth, so do the world's crops.

  • Major Nutrients

    Major Nutrients

    Of the major nutrients, nitrogen (N) is often required in the greatest quantity by crops, primarily for vigor and yield. Nitrogen plays a key role in chlorophyll production and protein synthesis. Chlorophyll is the green plant pigment responsible for photosynthesis. When nitrogen is deficient, plants develop yellow or pale leaves and their growth is stunted.

  • Micronutrients


    Micronutrients reinforce and supplement the strong plant growth and structures provided by major and secondary nutrients. Most micronutrients influence growth. For example, manganese (Mn), iron (Fe) and copper (Cu) all influence photosynthesis, the process whereby plants use sunlight for growth.

  • Secondary Nutrients

    Secondary Nutrients

    Of the three secondary nutrients needed at lower levels than NPK, calcium (Ca) is perhaps the most important. Calcium strengthens cell walls, helping to reduce bruising and disease in fruit, salad and vegetable crops. This means that a good supply of calcium produces food crops that are less prone to damage and have a longer shelf...

  • Field Applied Nitrogen Fertilizer

    Field Applied Nitrogen Fertilizer

    Nitrogen is essential for healthy plant growth and good yield. Straight nitrogen fertilizers are often the major source of this important nutrient.Nitrate forms of nitrogen are most swiftly absorbed by crops, which is why they are commonly used when a fast response is needed. In contrast, ammonium- and urea-based fertilizers need to be transformed by microbe activity in the soil before plants can absorb them. Therefore they are more commonly used...

  • Fertigation


    'Fertigation' is the combined application of water and nutrients to a crop – a mix of fertilizer and irrigation. It can be adapted to all types of crops, but is most common in cash-crop segments, rather than broad-acre or arable crops.Yara has a wide range of fertigation and liquid fertilizers to meet any crop situation. Our full range of essential nutrients can be used in drip irrigation, sprinkler systems or pivot agriculture.

  • Foliar


    Foliar applications are used for targeted input at key growth stages. By spraying directly onto the crop, nutrient availability can be controlled and soil interaction avoided. Foliar sprays are particularly useful for accurately applying relatively low doses of micronutrients. However major and secondary nutrients are sprayed at key growth stages to supplement soil-applied nutrients, for example calcium sprays on apples during fruit development.
