Nuestra carta es la de ser lo más racionales posible

Por J. Cortijo (Servicio Agronómico de Fertiberia S.A.)

El contacto con los profesionales de la agricultura nos deja la sensación de que este año se ha abonado poco en la comunidad. La situación es compleja y da para tener en cuenta elementos muy dispares.

Fertilización nitrogenada: Inhibidores

Un inhibidor es un compuesto que se añade a un fertilizante con nitrógeno para reducir las pérdidas cuando se aplica al cultivo. Si alargamos el tiempo en el que el nitrógeno permanece en el suelo, ya sea como urea-N o amonio-N, el inhibidor puede mejorar la eficiencia en el uso del nitrógeno (NUE) y reducir las emisiones al medio ambiente.

Esta información está publicada en el marco de la iniciativa de Fertilizers Europe Infinite Nutrient Stewardship englobada en Infinite Fertilizers, para aumentar la eficiencia del uso de los nutrientes y reducir la huella de carbono de la producción de alimentos.

Legislation on fertilizers

Here you will find different orders, circulars and decrees on fertilization that we consider essential in order to know the legal regulations referring to them, as well as the most important Spanish and European Community legislative references on fertilizers in relation to the products and to the sampling and analysis.

ROYAL DECREE 506/2013, OF 28 JULY, ON FERTILIZER PRODUCTS

It defines the fertilizers that can be used for agriculture and gardening, other than EC fertilizers. It refers to domestic inorganic fertilizers, organic fertilizers, organo-mineral fertilizers, other products and special products, liming amendments, organic amendments and other amendments. In addition, it regulates the aspects of Regulation (EC) no. 2003/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 13 October 2003, regarding fertilizers, whose concretion and development have been entrusted to the Member States. This Royal Decree repeals Royal Decree 824/2005, of 8 July, and includes very few modifications with respect to it, which affect the content of its articles 2, 12, 13, 14, 19, 21, 24, 26, 27, 30 and 31 and some sections of the annexes.
