The physical characteristics of granulated fertilizers have a significant influence on the spreading pattern by affecting the behaviour of the granule in the spreader and the way it travels through the air. It is important that these properties do not alter during storage.
The evenness and precision of spreading depends directly on the quality of the fertilizer. Particularly when applied with broadcast spreaders at wide working widths, the fertilizer must have clearly defined and consistent physical characteristics.
Borealis L.A.T is dedicated to delivering the best quality.
The spreading of granules comprises several stages that involve a large number of parameters:
In each of these five processes, the physical characteristics of the fertilizer play a major role.
The physical characteristics of granulated fertilizers from Borealis L.A.T are optimised to protect them during storage and allow precise and even spreading.
The term physical quality encompasses many physical properties that have an impact on spreading; density, sphericity, hardness, mean diameter, grain size distribution, dust rate, resistance to humidity reabsorption.
That means that physical quality is an essential requirement.
Borealis L.A.T guarantees superior and consistent physical quality across our entire product range.
