Properties and Application of Agricultural Ammonium Calcium Nitrate


Agricultural ammonium calcium nitrate (also known as ammonium calcium nitrate, molecular formula 5Ca (NO3) 2 • NH4 • NO3 • 10H2O molecular weight 1080.71, customs declaration commodity name is a mixture of calcium nitrate and ammonium nitrate, tax code 3102600), which follows the standard of the Ministry of Agriculture for agricultural ammonium calcium nitrate (NY2269-2012). It is a white circular particle, easily soluble in water, and a new type of high-efficiency composite fertilizer containing nitrogen and available calcium, belonging to agricultural fertilizers, Not included in the list of hazardous chemicals. Enterprises producing standard agricultural ammonium calcium nitrate must conduct anti explosion tests, toxicity tests, and fertilizer efficiency tests during the process of applying for fertilizer registration certificates in accordance with regulations. In 2019, China Railway Corporation conducted a non hazardous assessment of agricultural ammonium nitrate calcium transportation requirements. Each enterprise conducted inspections at designated testing institutions and found that the product was not explosive, flammable, oxidizing, radioactive, or contained heavy metals.
According to statistics, there are 35 calcium magnesium fertilizer enterprises in Jiaocheng County, Shanxi Province, with a production capacity of 2 million tons. The main agricultural fertilizer products, mainly ammonium nitrate and calcium, account for 80% of the domestic market share. The main export products include agricultural ammonium calcium nitrate, calcium magnesium nitrate, medium element water-soluble nitro fertilizer, etc., mainly sold to Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, India, Russia, Mexico, South Africa, the United States, Spain, France, etc. Due to advantages such as transportation distance, Tianjin Port is the most commonly used port for exporting this type of product.
