EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS FOR THE APPLICATION OF LIQUID FERTILIZERS IN FIELD CROPS - NEWS AND PERSPECTIVES
The rapid increase in global population and consequent demand for food security necessitate efficient and sustainable agricultural practices. This comprehensive study explores the utilization of liquid fertilizers in agriculture, focusing on their various application techniques and equipment. Liquid fertilizers offer benefits like quick nutrient absorption, uniform application, and customizable nutrient blends, providing farmers with a flexible solution for enhancing crop yields while mitigating environmental impact. Specialized equipment like adjustable nozzles and band applicators further increase the precision and efficiency of liquid fertilizer application. Automated systems, incorporating advanced technologies such as GPS and real-time data analytics, represent the future of precision agriculture, promising higher yields and greater sustainability. Challenges like implementation complexities in smaller farms and initial investment costs are acknowledged, but overall, automated systems offer a scalable and efficient solution for modern agriculture.
