Synonymous with ammonium hydrogen sulfate
NH4 (2SO4) is an inorganic salt with very high efficiency. Its most important application is the preparation of chemical fertilizers. It contains 21% nitrogen in the form of a positive ammonium ion and 24% of sulfur in the form of a negative sulfate anion. The presence of sulfate in fertilizer is to reduce soil pH.
Nitrogen is one of the most important elements and key factors in achieving optimal yield in agricultural and horticultural crops. This element has the highest concentration in plants and is a growth bottleneck and plays an important role in increasing yield so that its deficiency limits yield more than other nutrients.
Nitrogen is the most abundant element in the atmosphere. It is the most widely used element among the elements, which is absorbed through the roots in the form of NO3-1 nitrate ions, NH4 + 1 ammonium ions and urea CH4N2O, and after transfer to the leaves, interferes in the synthesis of amino acids and finally proteins.
Nitrogen is an important component of other organic compounds such as chlorophyll pigments and coenzymes. Nitrogen stimulates the vegetative growth of the tree and if consumed in large quantities leads to the creation of soft tissues and increased stumps and stems in the tree and has an adverse effect on the production process.
