Popular Wholesale Fertilizer Terms

All over the world, wholesale distributors manufacture fertilizer. Retailers purchase the fertilizer and then inflate the price in order to make a profit. To have a more comprehensive understanding about the terminology associated with the wholesale fertilizer industry, we must first familiarize ourselves with the terms commonly used. Below are several popular terms to be familiar with if in the market for wholesale fertilizer.

  • Humic Acid - Humic acid is the principle component in humic substances. These substances are the major components of soil, humus, peat, and coal. Soil scientists believe the humic qualities in soil aid in water retention thereby providing the plant with added moisture.
  • Organic Fertilizer - Fertilizer which is derived from plant or animal matter rather than from the combination or breakdown of synthetic chemicals.
  • Liquid Nitrogen - A synthetic fertilizer applied to crops. A process known as the Haber process is used to convert the nitrogen to ammonia which aids in crop health.
  • Urea - A synthetic chemical commonly used in fertilizer and animal feed. It is a water soluble powder with a slight saline taste accompanied by the odor of ammonia. It has the highest nitrogen content amongst all solid nitrogenous fertilizers in use today. Urea is also an organically occurring compound in many animals and fish.
  • Manure - The excrement, especially of animals or other refuse commonly used in the fertilization of soil. As the excrement breaks down, it adds much needed nutrients to the soil resulting in healthier crops or plants. Manure can also be synthetically manufactured but is more commonly available as an organic product.
  • Aeration - A process by which a grower will introduce oxygen into the soil to aid in root and plant health. Aeration is common in the landscape and lawncare industries to maintain and improve soil health thereby resulting in a healthier lawn.

    Fertilizers are sold to both gardeners and farmers. Farmers often purchase their fertilizers direct from wholesalers. Most gardeners purchase them from garden centers or home improvement stores. Wholesalers, thus, sell to retailers and farmers. Manufacturers may also sell direct to both. Fertilizers are processed and manufactured by specialists who must be educated regarding types of fertilizers. For example, lawn fertilizers are designed to feed grass, but not other plants. Lawn treatments often include weedkillers. Different crops require different nutrients. Fertilizers are designed to feed roses and other flowers, or specific vegetables, or grains. Organic fertilizers are currently fashionable in some horticultural circles. Soil amendment is a means of using organic and natural methods to restore soil without the use of added fertilizer. Agriculture, however, has long known the benefits of old fashioned manure. The first fertilizer used was likely animal manure and in some societies human waste was used as a fertilizer. Compost is another low tech fertilizer, created by allowing organic waste to decompose into mulch, which is then mixed with the dirt. Related, is the sale of topsoil to gardeners and landscapers. Manure is still in fairly common use, with horse manure being considered particularly desirable. Historically, fertilizer has long been used as a means to increase food yields. Modern chemical fertilizers are most commonly produced in a liquid form that can easily be sprayed. The manufacturing of such chemical fertilizers takes place in specially designed, integrated factories. Chemical fertilizers are specially designed compounds that contain varying amounts of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. A good fertilizer is designed not just to supplement the plants but also to restore the soil. Liquid fertilizers are deployed through sprayer systems or from aircraft. Fertilizer suppliers may deliver to farms in tanker trucks. Retail outlets generally use small sprayers, suitable for garden use.
