Studies have shown that the foliar spraying method provides nutrients to the plant more easily because the nutrients enter the plant quickly through the leaves.
Advantages of using ammonium sulfate fertilizer
Ammonium sulfate contains nitrogen in the form of ammonium, which is quickly absorbed and used by plant roots with the lowest amount of energy consumption.
The presence of sulfur in the form of sulfate in this fertilizer along with ammonium lowers the pH of the soil and facilitates the absorption of other low-use elements in the soil, including iron, zinc, copper and manganese.
This fertilizer is also used as an auxiliary spray in agriculture for water-soluble insecticides, herbicides and fungicides.
Non-agricultural uses of ammonium sulfate
This combination is used in the production of printed circuit boards.
It is also present in the manufacture of flame retardant materials, as it lowers the combustion temperature and increases the production of residual particles.
Ammonium sulfate activates yeast, so it helps industrial bread rise, and it’s also a general purpose food additive.
Ammonium sulfate plays an important role in the production of vaccines during the purification process.
The DTap vaccine, which protects children against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough, uses ammonium sulfate for this purpose.
