Specialty Fertilizers are small fertilizer particles that restrict the amount of moisture contact and help gradually release fertilizer nutrients into the crops, which can be for weeks or for months as well. Specialty fertilizers contribute to advanced fertilizer management programs and to innovative farming systems. They significantly reduce possible loss of nutrients, particularly losses of nitrate nitrogen between applications, and uptake by the plant through gradual nutrient release. They also reduce loss of ammonia due to evaporation, which substantially decreases the risk of environmental pollution. The demand for these fertilizers is on a surge because of the advantages they provide over the conventional fertilizers. They help reduce the environmental effects which conventional fertilizers pose to the earth.
