Fertilizer means plant nutrients
There are many ways to formulate fertilizer – plant nutrients. Two main types are solid fertilizer, often shaped as granulates, and liquid fertilizer, that is most commonly a solution of nutrients. Suspension fertilizer (solid particles in a flowable liquid form) is an intermediate.
Solid fertilizer is the easiest to transport, as it contains very little water, whereas liquid fertilizer often contains more water, and hence weighs more per kg of nutrient. On the other hand, liquid fertilizer is easier for the plant to take up and more precise to dose.
What nitrients are fertilizer?
Plant need 14 essential nutrients, and therefore fertilizer is often comprised of these:
Intelligent fertiliser design that can be constantly adjusted
Better utilisation of nitrogen and phosphorus
Optimisation of yield and profit

Out of these, the first 6 are so called macro nutrients, meaning the nutrients the plant needs the most of. The latter are micro nutrients, of which the plant need much less. For instance molybdenum and nickel the plant needs less than 1 gram per ton of dry matter.
Besides these elements, the plant needs water (H2O) and carbondioxide (CO2) and light to grow.
There are also other elements that can have a positive effect on plant growth in some plant species, e.g. sodium – Na – cobolt – Co – silicon – Si – vanadium – Va and Selenium – Se.
FLEX FERTILIZER SYSTEM
– the fertilizer system of the future
We have developed a fertilizer system – FLEX Fertilizer System – that is based on liquid fertilizer, as this is the most precise way to fertilize. The problem with liquid fertilizer is that transporting water over long distances is expensive. This we have solved by producing locally, so that the transport will be as short as possible. We have also formulated many of our products so that they are mixable – we call the concept Flex & Match – so that the farmer can reach the exact nutrient composition the plants need, if there is not a single product that fits.
Flex Fertilizer System FLEX on FARM
As something completely new, FLEX Fertilizer System also offers large farms the opportunity to rent a mixing unit, to mix their own bespoke fertilizers. We call this concept FLEX on FARM. It makes very good sense, if the farm is 500 ha and above.
