Liquid fertilization is the perfect form of application here because it can be applied sharp to the edge without loss of yield through under-fertilization in the border area. In the early development stage of the crop, nozzles are used for liquid fertilization (e.g. FD, FL, FS nozzles). When the plants are already larger, hose drop systems or DroplegUL are used to ensure gentle liquid fertilizer application. These systems are perfect for late top dressing in cereals or corn for example. The so-called "burning", in which the crop is damaged by liquid fertilizer, can thus be avoided. Hose drop systems should be driven at least 30 cm in the crop but should never be dragged directly on the ground in order to ensure good lateral distribution and at the same time protecting the plant.
