Ammonium sulfate-nitrate is a mineral fertilizer that simultaneously supplies plants with nitrogen, sulfur, and micronutrient elements. Its application increases soil fertility and has a positive effect on the growth and formation of crops compared to traditional fertilizers. It can be used on all types of soil and for all crops. Ammonium sulfate-nitrate is especially demanded in regions with a lack of sulfur in soils. Sulfur keeps nitrogen in the soil, preventing it from being washed out quickly.
