Greenhouse grade fertilizers for growing vegetables

The right greenhouse grade fertilizers for vegetables are of utmost importance for optimal grow and maximum crop yield. Depending on the vegetable crop you are growing, fertility rates and ratios may vary. Selecting the appropriate crop fertility, the substrate you use is an important factor. One crucial factor in successfully growing  greenhouse vegetables is the use of a precise and reliable greenhouse irrigation system. The irrigation water may already contain nutrients, potentially impacting the pH value. The frequency of fertilization also impacts plant growth. Adjustments to the fertility program are necessary based on whether the plant is in a vegetative or reproductive growth phase.

Growers utilize A and B tanks to formulate their fertility programs. The A tank is used for calcium, nitrate and iron. The B tank is primarily used for kalium, phosphorus, acid and trace elements. However, there is no ideal fertility program that suits all vegetable crops. Each crop demands its own specific nutrients.
