Yesterday I purchased fertilisers for the coming season. I purchased; Nitrophos – 100kg ( is not chemically pure like urea and DAP The impurity provides Micronutrients) the reason for selection. Potassium Murate =50 Kg Urea = 50 Kg CAN (Calcium Ammonium Nitrate) = 50 Kg Humic acid = 3Kg Grow more (water soluble) NPK 20-20-20 = 500Gm USE General purpose; NitroPhos 3 parts Pot. Murate 1 part = NPK 15-15-15 The basic will be modified by addition of N, P or K. Urea for the Lawns and CAN for alteration of NPK. Humic acid for flower beds/pots and Soluble NPK for Spray and seedlings. Oh! in case you are wondering about the quantity, I also have to feed a few hundred various fruit trees at my THOKAR garden.

Sulphate /plant
Spray 10% zinc sulphate5% hydrated fresh lime Fertilization: Guavas are fast growers and heavy feeders, and benefit from regular applications of fertilizer. Mature trees may require as much as 1/2 pound actual nitrogen per year. Apply fertilizer monthly, just prior to heavy pruning. Bananas: Their rapid growth rate make bananas heavy feeders. During warm weather, apply a balanced fertilizer once a month--a 8:10:8 NPK fertilizer appears to be adequate. A mature plant may require as much as 1-1/2 to 2 pounds of the above fertilizer each month. Young plants need a quarter to a third as much. Spread the fertilizer evenly around the plant in a circle extending 4 - 8 feet from the trunk. Do not allow the fertilizer to come in contact with the trunk. Feed container container plants on the same monthly schedule using about half the rate for outside plants. Papaya: The fast-growing papaya requires regular applications of nitrogen fertilizers but the exact rates have not been established. Feed monthly and adjust according to the plant's response. They can take fairly hot organic fertilizing such as chicken manure if used with deep irrigation after warm weather has started. Phosphorus deficiency casuses dark green foliage with a reddish-purple discoloration of leaf veins and stalks Tamarind: The tamarind is not very demanding in its nutritional requirements. Young trees should be fertilized every 2 - 3 months with a 6-6-3 NPK or similar analysis fertilizer. Apply 1/4 lb. and gradually increase to about 1/2 lb. Thereafter, young trees should receive 1/2 lb. per application, per year of tree age, 3 - 4 times a year. Bearing trees can be fertilized with 8-3-9 NPK or similar analysis, at rates of about 1/2 lb. per application per year of tree age. Microelements, particularly iron may be required for trees in alkaline soils.
Izhar i always test my soil from Tarnab fruit farms.its Gov running research farm.they introduce new & improved fruits & veggies varieties.there is a local lab here which is run by Agri dep.but some body told me that they are not fair.they will deliberately recommend u what the local fertilizer dealers are offering to farmers to increase their sales.
My point of view is that if we know the soil analysis results and pH, we would be able to get the best results by only eliminating the deficiencies, like for example we used Ferrous sulfate for our acid loving plants like gardenia and ixoras, the results are promising as they were just craving for the extra iron.. if our soil has enough nitrogen or phosphorus then additional application will result in toxicity...
