Acron Group, a leading mineral fertiliser producer in Russia and globally, has developed several new brands of NPK complex mineral fertilisers at its Veliky Novgorod site that are tailored for the cereal crops grown in West and East Africa. In 2021, Acron shipped over 25,000 tonnes of its new NPK brands to countries in the region.
Acron’s experts comprehensively reviewed local farming methods and developed the following new NPK brands: 23-10-5+S+Mg+Zn, 23-9-6+S+Ca+Mg+B, 22-20+S+Ca+Zn, and 20-10-10+S, which are perfectly suited for growing most cereals, specifically maize, wheat, and barley.
The key advantages of the new brands are additional nutrients (calcium, magnesium, and sulphur) and crucial microelements (zinc and boron), which balance nutrition during the crop lifecycle. The new NPK brands have minimal acidity effect, which is significant for those African countries where the soil acidity is already high.
