2.2 Seedings with an Optimization of Nutrient Contents in the Soil (Fertilization Measures)

Especially poor in nutrients are raw soils with low contents in organic matter (humus). Without a certain minimum amount of plant-available macro nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium), successful vegetation growth is hardly possible. We use start fertilizers, which provide quickly disposable nutrients for short-term needs, as well as slow-release fertilizers, which deliver the nutrients slowly over a long period. Concerning time and components, we conceive our fertilizing measures such that remarkable leaching losses, and thus, ground water contamination is avoided.
