Fertilizer Products

Sona Urea

Agricultural Use:

Urea is a concentrated straight nitrogenous fertilizer that contains 46% nitrogen, which is a major plant nutrient. Nitrogen is a vital component of chlorophyll which is necessary for the photosynthesis process. It is applied to promote vegetative growth of crops and orchards in splits (basal & top-dressing).

In irrigated crops, Mostly, Urea is applied on the standing crop followed by irrigation to minimize its losses. In rain fed areas, it is often spread just before rain to minimize losses through volatilization process. “Sona Urea” produced by FFC is in prilled form and at FFBL in Granular form. Granular Urea has the advantage of ease of application on standing crops because of large size granules. Its efficiency is relatively better in high water demanding crops like rice.

Industrial Use:

Raw material for manufacturing of plastics, adhesives and industrial feedstock.


Agriculture Use:

Di-ammonium Phosphate (DAP) belongs to a series of water-soluble ammonium phosphates that is produced through a reaction of ammonia and phosphoric acid. DAP is the most concentrated phosphatic fertilizer containing 46% P2O5 and 18% N. It is recommended for all crops as basal fertilizer to be applied at the time of sowing for better root proliferation and inducing energy reactions in the plants. The solubility of DAP is more than 90%, which is the highest among the phosphatic fertilizers available in the Country; due to which it can also be applied post planting through fertigation. Further, on account of its nitrogen content; upon completion of nitrification process, the ultimate reaction of DAP is acidic.

Industrial Use:

Fire retardant used in commercial firefighting products. Other uses are as metal finisher, yeast nutrient and sugar purifier.


Agricultural Use:

SOP is an important source of Potash, a quality nutrient for production of crops, especially fruits and vegetables. FFC SOP contains 50% K2O in addition to 18%

sulfur, which is an important nutrient especially for oil seed crops because of its role in increasing the oil contents. It has also an additional advantage of ameliorating effect on salt-affected soils. Sulfur also helps in containing spread of fungal or other soil borne diseases. Potash is an important nutrient for activation of enzymes in the plant body, develops resistance against pests, diseases, stresses like water/frost injury and also helps in increasing sugar / starch contents in plants. It also improves quality and taste of vegetables / fruits.
FFC SOP is one of the finest quality products with less than 1% Chloride content being imported from European origin and preferred for the high value Tobacco crop.

Industrial Use:

Occasionally used in manufacturing of glass.


Agricultural Use:

Potassium chloride (commonly referred as Muriate of Potash or MOP) is the most common potassium source used in agriculture, accounting for more than 90% of all potash fertilizers used worldwide. FFC MOP contains 60% K2O and is used mainly for fertilizing sugarcane, maize, fruit trees, vegetables and other field crops except tobacco.

Industrial Use:

Used in Medicine, scientific applications, food processing etc.

Sona Boron

Agricultural Use:

Sona Boron is a micronutrient fertilizer in the form of Di-Sodium Tetra Borate Decahydrate in 3 Kg packing. It is an essential micronutrient required for plant nutrition, which plays a vital role in a number of growth processes especially new cell development, fruit/seed setting, translocation of sugars, starches, nitrogen and phosphorous, nodule formation in legumes and regulation of carbohydrate metabolism. Boron deficiency appears in youngest leaves as wrinkled, often thicker and of a darkish blue green color. As deficiency progresses, the terminal growing point dies and flowers & fruits formation is restricted or inhibited; fruits remain very small and of poor quality. Keeping in view increasing boron deficiency in Pakistan soils, FFC is providing superior quality Sona Boron containing 10.5% Boron (Borax). It is soluble in water and readily available to plants. It is used as soil application alone or by mixing with other fertilizers.

Sona Zinc

Agricultural Use:

Sona Zinc is a micronutrient fertilizer in the form of Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate (27%) in 3 Kg packing. It is an essential micronutrient required for plant nutrition, which plays a vital role in a number of growth processes especially in chlorophyll synthesis, proteins, activation of enzymes and plays important part in hormonal activity particularly auxins. Zinc deficiency is widespread throughout Pakistan and zinc deficiency in soil is translating as deficient element in human diet and livestock feed. In crops, its deficiency results in growth inhibition, leaf yellowing, less number of leaves and low crop yields. The zinc deficiency is causing different diseases in humans and livestock. Keeping in view the wide spread deficiency of zinc in Pakistan, FFC is providing high quality Sona Zinc. It is highly water soluble and can also be used as fertigation i.e. application with irrigation. It can be mixed with other fertilizers for broadcast in the field.

Farm Advisory Services

Fauji Fertilizer Company Limited has been providing farm advisory services to the farming community throughout Pakistan since 1981, for increasing the agriculture production in general and the farmers’ income in particular. Our organization in pursuit of its national commitment and moral obligation maintains regular contact with farmers and Agricultural Institutions to ensure efficient transfer of modern agricultural technology in an effective way.

The Company is providing quality farm advisory services all over the country through its 5 Farm Advisory Centers and Regional Agri. Services Officers. Farm Advisory Centers are located at  Sheikhupura, Sargodha, Multan, Rahim Yar Khan and Hyderabad.

Each center has a team of four Agricultural Experts, providing multifarious advisory services through crop demonstrations, field days, farmer meetings, crop seminars and farm visits. All the centers are fully equipped with modern sophisticated computerized Soil & Water Testing Laboratories and high-tech extension equipment. Moreover, FFC has also established a micronutrient and plant tissue analysis laboratory at Farm Advisory Centre, Sahiwal having Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer and other analytical instruments. Soil testing is a valuable tool to propagate appropriate and balanced use of chemical fertilizers and to identify soil problems. Soil/water samples are collected from farmers’ fields and analyzed in the laboratories. Fertilizer recommendations & reclamation reports are developed on the basis of soil analysis and delivered to the growers for the balanced use of fertilizer and to reclaim the soil. The soil/water testing and micronutrient analysis facility is offered free of cost. Besides these five farm advisory centers, we have Agri. Services Officers, spread all over the country and extending these services in their respective areas.

To further strengthen our advisory services and facilitate farmers, we also publish crop, vegetables and fruits brochures in addition to agro-grams, posters and pamphlets containing latest information regarding production technologies of crops, vegetables and fruits grown in Pakistan. For a stronger direct link and timely guidance of farmers, we publish Newsletter – Zari Report in Urdu on quarterly basis. This contains season specific information regarding crops, fruits, vegetables, improved agronomic practices and articles on agricultural issues.

To improve the fertilizer use efficiency and to obtain optimum crop yields, a “Fertilizer Guide Book” and “Fertilizer Recommendation Book” has also been published containing comprehensive information on various fertilizers available in Pakistan, their application methods and their economic use.

FFC has also adopted the pragmatic approach of telecasting crop documentaries on PTV before the onset of every sowing season of major crops. In these documentaries all the components of crop production are covered with sufficient elaboration. Cotton, wheat, sugarcane and rice documentaries can be viewed on Kashtkar Desk of our website www.ffc.com.pk

We encourage our farmers to get registered on our mailing list by sending a request in writing or through e-mail and by visiting our Farm Advisory Centers / Regional offices located throughout the country to receive copies of our published material free of cost. SMS on current agriculture issues are also sent to farmers on the mailing list.

For further information or agricultural advisory services, farmers can call at our Toll Free FARMER HELPLINE NUMBER 0800-00332 or visit any of our nearest Farm Advisory Center or Regional Office.
