Water Soluble Fertilizers
Water soluble fertilizers are fertilizers that can be dissolved in water and added or leached out of the soil easily. Among the sixteen elements required for the development and growth of any crop, N P K are the major nutrients. Water Soluble NPK’s are fast acting, highly efficient & extremely useful for increasing the yield and quality of horticultural and all field & cash crops.
GSFC have following combination of Grades of water soluble fertilizers under the umbrella of “Sardar” brand which is packed in various packs as per the need of the application by farmers.
