The farming cultures differ in their needs of nitrogen for the formation of their production. These specific needs and the conditions, which they are grown under, constitute a basis for the determination of nitrogen mineral fertifilization. The following are observed in events of absence of sufficient nitrogen in plants:

  • Delayed growth;
  • Initial pale green, yellow-green and even yellow foliage with subsequent browning and dying of the leaves;
  • Low resistance to abiotic and biotic stress;
  • Premature ripening

The excess nitrogen:

  • Accelerates the growth, the foliage grows up wildly and acquires dark green color;
  • The vegetation time period is extended;
  • The plants become non-resistant to diseases, frost and drought;
  • The technological qualities and the flavors of the production get deteriorated.
