As well known, the main goal in agriculture is to gain the highest yield with the highest quality in a unit area. The most efficient way of achieving this goal is to feed plants with balanced nutrients at right times. A soil analysis must be done to identify what nutriens are missing in the soil and, hence, to feed plants accordingly. Soil analysis, however, can be misleading for farmers when it is the only data because in some cases quality and yield of plant can still be low even if the soil is found to have sufficient micro and macro nutrients after soil tests. The reason for such a poor outcome is that the nutrients, which have been proven to exist in the soil by soil analysis, can be tied up; i.e. not in a form that plants can take in. Nutrients which cannot be taken in by plants are effectively non-existent. So leaf analysis must be done too. If the leaf analysis proves microelements or NPK to be insufficient, then the plant must be fed from soil or from leaf, but certainly in a way that plants can take in.
EKOTARIM Ltd, which puts balanced plant feeding first, offers professional and integrated solutions to our farmers. The solutions that we specifically prescribe for each type of soil and plant have been appreciated by our farmers in great deal. Their appreciation has encouraged us to reach farmers in other counties in our region. We conducted a number of pilot applications to demonstrate the quality of our fertilizers in Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Iran. Upon good results, we did our first export in 2004. With our export protocol with GUBRETAS A.S., we added granule, powder, liquid and organic fertilizers to our export product range, which initially consisted of powder and mineral fertilizers.
