Vegetables
The vegetables' quality and yields are equally important for profitable crops.


For a more productive, good quality vegetable .
The Oxyfertil« solution lets you manage your vegetables' fertilisation optimally.
Through well calculated inputs of the five major fertilisers that vegetables need, namely, calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) with 100% availability, Oxyfertil« will enable you to meet your production targets.

As the trial summarised in the adjacent graph shows, Oxyfertil improves the productivity of your crops as well as the crops' specific qualities. These two criteria are inseparable if vegetables are to sell well.
