Ecosoil - Chlorine-Free, Phytogenic Compound Fertilizer
Ecosoil – is environmentally friendly, chlorine-free, phytogenic compound fertilizer, based on sunflower husk ash. A wide range of plant food ratios in one granule gives a possibility to fertilize effectively the full range of agricultural crops (cereals, oilseeds, industrial and forage crops) and reach a high level of profitability.

The main active ingredient of the fertilizer is potassium (K2O) in an amount of 28-41%. Due to the water-soluble and readily available for plant form of carbonates (K2CO3) and sulfate (K2SO4) the Ecosoil shows high efficiency in the early stages of development of green crops, corn, sunflower, winter and spring rape during the spring presowing application under cultivation.
Ecosoil does not contain chlorine, so it can be used for such chlorine sensitive cultures as potatoes, vegetables, fruit and berry. Also applied in a row fertilization or side-dressing under sunflower, winter and spring rape in its pure form, and a composition recommended fertilizer mixtures combined with carbamide and ammophos.
As alkaline fertilizer (pH 10-11) Ecosoil has high neutralizing capacity, thereby capable of reducing the acidity of the soil. Ecosoil contains up to 25% of calcium and magnesium carbonates (CaO, MgO), that is, 1 ton Ecosoil by neutralizing capacity equivalent to 0.35 tons of lime.
Beside potassium (K2O) and calcium (CaO) Ecosoil contains 5% phosphorus (P2O5) 8.12% Magnesium (MgO) 8-16%, and sulfur (S). Thus, the total content of primary nutrients in Ecosoil is not less than 70%, which is the highest among other industrial granular fertilizers such as ammonium phosphate (64%) or potassium chloride (60%). This is not surprising if we take into account the fact that the fertilizer Ecosoil made on the basis of the ash of sunflower – crop, which consumes a large amount of soil potassium and other macro-and micronutrients.
Ecosoil contains all the necessary minor plant nutrients, making it advantageous to use this fertilizer on crops such as winter and spring rape, sunflower, corn, potatoes, vegetables, requiring a large number of trace elements, especially boron, zinc, manganese.
As a result of the application of Ecosoil besides increasing the yield:
- Rise of dry matter content (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) and improvement of the product quality, also increases plant resistance to low temperatures;
- Corn: improves plant resistance to stalk lodging, also root and stem rot;
- Cereal crops: increasing the protein and starch content in grain;
- Sunflower and rape: oil content growing, increases resistance to plant diseases.
Ecosoil is organic fertilizer, contains much less toxic elements such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, fluorine compared to their content in traditional fertilizers. Application Ecosoil as potassium and calcium fertilizer reduces the accumulation of radionuclides in plants, because by shortage of potassium and calcium in the soil the plants begin to absorb rapidly their “substitutes” – cesium and strontium. In addition, because of calcium shortage increases soil acidity, the transition of radioactive substances in plants is amplified.
As far as Ecosoil is an all-purpose fertilizer and applied successfully on field, in yard and garden,
the fertilizer is packaged with maximum comfort for the buyer:
- plastic bags 2 and 5 kg for gardeners;
- polypropylene bags 20 and 40 kg;
- Industrial application on the fields – big-bags 1 tone weight for bulk delivery.
Due to the granular form Ecosoil dissolves gradually, is not washed out of the topsoil and has a certain aftereffect.
- 2-6 mm (middle fraction) is recommended for mechanized applications, as well as for the production of fertilizer mixtures (blends);
- 1-2 mm (fine fraction) is recommended for gardeners.
Spring application. As nutrition basis is recommended to apply before or during seeding (planting) the crops. Granular form allows you to scatter fertilizer for corn planter. Scattering is possible, as in the aisles and on the local hole
During active growing season. As chlorine-free fertilizer Ecosoil is perfectly used as the main plant nutrition. The fertilizer is recommended to apply as side-dressing by adequate soil moisture.
As a fertilizer, not containing nitrogen, Ecosoil is an ideal mineral complex fertilizer for autumn application for all kinds of agriculture and vegetable cultures.
In the case of repeated application throughout the year (sowing plus feeding) rates provided in the table are partitioned depending on the application amount.
The annual application rate for major crops (Table) is considered to be an average one and can vary depending on: soil composition, additional organic fertilizers, cultivar intensity.
When growing the seedling the recommended rate of fertilizer application is 0.5-1g per 1l of potting soil or soil.
By fertilizing trees and bushes the application rates (g/m2) are multiplied by area (m2) of the tree or bush crown. When planting tree 100 g of fertilizer Ecosoil is added to the planting hole and mixed with topsoil.
Since Ecosoil contains all the necessary mineral elements except nitrogen it is advisable to apply in spring additionally ammonium nitrate (N34) (not mixing with the fertilizer Ecosoil), urea (N46), or other nitrogen fertilizers. It is also possible to use additional phosphate fertilizers, such as: ammophos (R50N12), simple superphosphate (P19) or double superphosphate (P42).
