1. Urea: More than 90% of the world’s production is destined for use as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. Urea has the highest nitrogen content of all solid nitrogenous fertilizers in common use (46.7%).

2. Di-Ammonium Phosphate (DAP): It contains 46% P2O5 and 18% N. it is water soluble. It is a good source of P fertilizer for all crops. Good source for problem soils. Overall, it suits to about 90% soil of the country.

3. Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN): Calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) contains 27 % N and 20 % of ground limestone. This has a rapid as well as permanent effect. The granulation of this fertilizer ensures a quick and exact dosing.

4. Ammonium Sulphate (AS): (NHSO4) is an inorganic salt. It is used largely as an artificial fertilizer for alkaline soils. It lowers the pH balance of the soil, while contributing essential nitrogen for plant growth.

5. Single Super Phosphate: Superphosphate is a fertilizer produced by the action of concentrated sulfuric acid on powdered phosphate rock.

6. Nitro phosphate (NP): It provides 22% nitrogen, and 20% phosphorus. Nitrogen is a primary nutrient that really makes plants "grow”. Phosphorus is a primary nutrient that encourages rooting, blooming and fruit production in plants.

7. Sulphate of Potash: Potassium Sulphate is a non-flammable white crystalline salt which is soluble in water. This chemical is commonly used in fertilizers, providing both potassium and sulphur.
