Proper application of fertilizer
depends upon the type of fertilizer you buy and the type of equipment
you use. Dry fertilizers move into the soil and are taken up by the
roots and are then translocated throughout the plant, reaching the
leaves. Liquid fertilizers are absorbed primarily through the leaves.
Methods of application for dry fertilizers
- Fertilizers can be scattered by hand and raked in if gloves are
worn, but this method is not very efficient or accurate.
