Calcium Ammonium Nitrate Market: Introduction
Calcium ammonium nitrate is also known as nitro limestone and nitro chalk. Calcium ammonium nitrate is produce by mixing powdered limestone in the ammonium nitrate. It is widely used as fertilizer across the globe. Physiological characteristics of the mixture are neutral. It has the ability to neutralize the acidic soil. Calcium ammonium nitrate is an essential source of nitrogen for plant growth. Nitrogen is quickly absorbed by the plant roots at the fruiting stage; therefore, it is extensively employed by farmers worldwide. The presence of calcium improves soil health for a long period time. The fertilizer grade of calcium ammonium nitrate contains approximately 8% of calcium and around 21% to 27% of nitrogen. Therefore, it is suitable for enhancing root and soil health. Calcium ammonium nitrate is widely used in a number of countries where ammonium nitrate is banned.
