Common Fertilizer Chart

This is a searchable collection of Common Fertilizers. A fertilizer is any material of natural or synthetic origin that is applied to soils or to plant tissues to supply one or more plant nutrients essential to the growth of plants.Plants consume nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in such large amounts that soil will need replenishing if you want it to keep producing healthy plants. These elements provide the basis for the notation "NPK" commonly seen on fertilizer packages.

Diammonium phosphate(DAP)
DAP is the most widely used phosphate fertilizer among growers today.It is an excellent source of P and nitrogen for plant nutrition.It is highly soluble and thus dissolves quickly in soil to release plant-available phosphate and ammonium. When applied as plant food, it temporarily increases the soil pH, but over a long term the treated ground becomes more acidic than before upon nitrification of the ammonium.A notable property of DAP is the alkaline pH that develops around the dissolving granule.As ammonium is released from dissolving DAP granules, volatile ammonia can be harmful to seedlings and plant roots in immediate proximity.
