Dry and Liquid Fertilizers
Fertilizer is the general term to something applied to a plant in order to provide essential nutrients that contribute to plant growth. There are two general types, liquid and dry fertilizers. Although studies show that neither is better when comparing how agronomic they are, there are still different benefits between dry and liquid varieties. One of the main reasons farmers decide on dry types is that they tend to be cheaper when bought in bulk than liquids. In addition, they are usually a lot easier to store. Liquids require special storage and application systems. These systems are generally fairly expensive, so they take away from the benefits of liquids. However, the benefits of liquid come from the fact that they are easy to handle and apply to crops. Also, some pesticides are compatible with liquid fertilizers, so both can be applied to crops at the same time.
