The fertilizer is a key issue in the health of the species. as well as their ability to endure stresses water


In fertilization involves three major elements, phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N) and potassium (K). In addition there are elements such as calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and sulfur (S) are involved in less quantity. Finally, in smaller amounts, but playing a key role in the metabolism, are called trace elements such as iron, zinc, copper, manganese, boron and molybdenum.

Nitrogen, the most important part of the fertilized grass, is responsible for the color, vigor and a large part of the health of the grass. A lack of this will lead yellowish and dull colors and a decrease in root development. Instead of excess nitrogen can also become highly toxic to plants, causing intense green colors, a reduction of force, certain fungal proliferation, sensitivity to cold and heat, and in extreme cases death the plants.

Phosphorus is essential in the early stages of seed creixemente. A phosphorus deficiency will result in follatge darker, narrower and winding, and the appearance of red pigment.

Potassium provides an economy of water on the leaves, to reduce the moisture content of the plant will increase its resistance to cold, the resistance to diseases and trampling. His lack of coverage density will produce weak.

Calcium is essential for vegetative growth, and its deficiency can cause decreases in the root system and the appearance of necrotic spots on the leaves.

Magnesium is necessary for the synthesis of chlorophyll and promotes migration of phosphorus in seeds. A lack of magnesium can occur when there are large amounts of potassium, and vice versa.

Sulfur enhances the color of the grass especially in winter, and increases resistance to cold and disease resistance.
