Engineering :: Fertilizer Technology


1.  Nitrogenous fertilizer is required
A. during early stages of plant growth to promote development of stems and leaves B. to accelerate seeding or fruit formation in later stages of growth
C. for the development of the starches of potatoes and grains D. for the development of the sugar of fruits and vegetables and the fibrous material of plants

2.  Phosphatic fertilizer is required
A. during early stages of plant growth to promote development of stems and leaves B. to stimulate early growth and accelerate seeding or fruit formation in later stages of growth
C. for the development of the starches of potatoes and grains D. for the development of the sugar of fruits and vegetables and the fibrous material of plants

3.  Potassic fertilizer is required
A. for the development of the starches of potatoes and grains B. for the development of the sugar of fruits and vegetables
C. for the development of the fibrous material of plants D. all of these answers

4.  Excessive application of synthetic fertilizers often causes shrivelling of the roots and wilting of the plant. This is because

6.  Phosphatic fertilizer is graded based on its
A. P2O5 content B. P content
C. PCI3 content D. H3PO4 content

7.  Potassic fertilizer is graded based on its
A. K2O content B. KOH content
C. KNO3 content D. K content

8.  Mixed fertilizers contain three principal elements (nitrogen phosphorus and potassium). 5-10-5 mixed fertilizer contains
A. 5 wt. % P2O5 10%N 5% K2O B. 5 wt. % N 10% P2O5 5% K2O
C. 5 wt. % N 10% P2O5 85% K2O D. 10 wt. % N 10% P2O5 5% K2O

9.  NPK fertilizer is a
