YaraMila 8-11-20 (elemental) 8-24-24 (as oxide) is a combination of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) designed to maximize crop yield and quality. Formulated to meet precise crop requirements, YaraMila 8-11-20 is one of the most highly efficient sources of N, P and K available.
Each YaraMila 8-11-20 granule contains precisely tailored amounts of NPK. So, when applied at the right rate and in the right conditions,
YaraMila 8-11-20 ensures the accurate, and balanced uptake of these major nutrients into the crop.
The product is a compound and therefore offers even distribution of nutrients whether spread by hand or machine on the field. There is no risk of nutrient segregation during shipping, handling or spreading.
YaraMila 8-11-20 has a balanced nitrogen source, containing both nitrate-N and ammonium-N. A high nitrate concentration is a prerequisite to feed fast growing crops and ensure good root development, while the ammonium-N is important to keep a sustained delivery of nitrogen. In addition nitrate supports the uptake on positively charged nutrients (Ca++, Mg++, K+). Compared to pure ammonium or urea based fertilizers, YaraMila products are significantly more effective on an equal nitrogen basis, therefore, giving better yields and quality.
All phosphorus in YaraMila 8-11-20 is fully plant available, as water soluble orthophosphates and ammonium citrate soluble di-calciumphosphate. The combination of different forms give greater and a longer lasting availability of phosphorus to crops over a wide range of soil types.
The potassium in YaraMila 8-11-20 stimulates growth of strong stems and provides some disease and pest tolerance by increasing the thickness of the outer cell walls. Potassium also improves the frost and drought tolerance of plants. Potassium is essential for high yielding and high quality crops. An adequate supply of potassium has a positive effect on leaf, fruit and grain size. Fruit with an adequate potassium supply has higher total soluble solids (TSS) and therefore tastes better. Balancing potassium with other available cations in the soil is very important. High levels of potassium in the soil can suppress the availability of other nutrients, especially calcium and magnesium.
YaraMila 8-11-20 also contains sulfur, boron, copper, iron, manganese and zinc.
