A Review and Perspective on Slow and Controlled Release Fertilizer in China


Article Preview

slow and controlled release fertilizer; Development progress; Application status; suggestionAbstract: Slow and Controlled release fertilizer is a new fertilizer, which only improves the utilization rate of fertilizer, labor-saving, but also solves the problems of environmental pollution caused by common chemical fertilizer. Moreover, it has important significance in sustainable agriculture development. Based on the study of slow and controlled release fertilizer, we summarized a large number of research materials at home and abroad, comprehensive elaborated the development progress of slow and controlled release fertilizer in China, and reviewed the utilization efficiency of fertilizer in different corps. On this basis, we put forward suggestions for resolving present problems in China.
