Liquid fertiliser is a type of plant nutrient delivered in liquid form. It’s designed to provide essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium directly to plants through their roots or leaves. This method allows for quick absorption, helping plants grow faster and healthier. Liquid fertiliser can be applied using sprayers or irrigation systems, making it a convenient choice for large fields and gardens. It is especially popular in agriculture for its ease of use and quick results.

  1. Rapid Absorption: Liquid fertiliser is absorbed more quickly by plants because it is applied in a form that plants can immediately take up through their roots or leaves. Consequently, this quick absorption can lead to faster growth and more timely nutritional support compared to powdered fertiliser.

    Uniform Distribution: Additionally, liquid fertilisers can be evenly distributed across fields using sprayers or irrigation systems. This uniform application helps ensure that all plants receive the same amount of nutrients, thereby reducing the risk of over or under-fertilization that can occur with granular types.

    Ease of Application: Furthermore, applying liquid fertiliser is generally easier and faster, especially over large areas. It can be mixed with water and applied using existing irrigation systems, which simplifies the process and saves time.

    Precise Nutrient Management: Moreover, liquid fertiliser allows for more precise control over nutrient ratios and delivery timings, which can be adjusted according to the specific needs of the crops at different stages of growth.

    Reduced Soil Compaction: Since liquid fertiliser can be applied via irrigation, it reduces the need for heavy machinery that is typically used to spread granular fertiliser, thus minimizing soil compaction.

    Versatility: In addition to these benefits, liquid fertilisers can be used as both soil applications and foliar feeds (directly on the leaves). This versatility is particularly useful for addressing nutrient deficiencies in a targeted and efficient manner.

    Reduced Losses: Finally, there’s often less nutrient loss to the environment with liquid fertiliser because it can be applied more accurately and absorbed more efficiently than granular forms, which are more susceptible to being washed away before they dissolve.

Benefits of GRP Liquid fertiliser tanks vs. steel Tanks:

  • Corrosion Resistance: GRP tanks are inherently resistant to corrosion from fertilisers, while steel tanks are prone to rust and degradation.
  • Leak Resistance: GRP tanks are seamless and less likely to leak compared to steel tanks, which may develop joints or seams that can fail over time.
  • Maintenance: GRP requires less maintenance as they do not need periodic painting or rust prevention, unlike steel.
  • Weight: GRP tanks are lighter, making them easier and cheaper to transport and install than steel tanks.
  • Durability: GRP offers superior durability in harsh environments compared to steel, extending the usable life of the tanks.

Benefits of GRP Liquid fertiliser tanks vs. Polyethylene Tanks:

  • Chemical Stability: GRP does not react with the chemical components of fertilisers, maintaining the purity of the contents, unlike polyethylene which can sometimes interact with certain chemicals.
  • Structural Integrity: GRP tanks can handle higher loads and more stress without deforming, unlike polyethylene which can crack under pressure or deform under high temperatures.
  • UV Resistance: GRP is more resistant to UV degradation, making it suitable for long-term outdoor exposure without losing strength or integrity, unlike polyethylene which can become brittle and weaken over time.
  • Customizability: GRP can be custom-molded to any desired shape and size and fitted with specific fixtures, offering more design flexibility than polyethylene.
  • Temperature Tolerance: GRP can withstand higher temperatures compared to polyethylene, which is an advantage in environments where temperatures can vary significantly.

These distinct advantages make GRP tanks a preferred choice for storing liquid fertiliser, ensuring safety, durability, and efficiency in agricultural storage solutions.

Do fertiliser tanks need to be bunded?

For the storage of liquid fertiliser, bunding is often essential to prevent leaks and environmental contamination. Implementing bunding ensures compliance with environmental standards and provides a robust safeguard against potential spills, which is crucial for maintaining safety and protecting the environment.

Talk to your Liquid fertiliser suppliers

Camplas stresses the importance of collaboration between customers and their fertiliser suppliers to properly assess risks and ensure that storage solutions comply with DEFRA and the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) codes of practice for storing liquid fertilisers. For guidance on  handling Liquid Fertiliser please visit  Working closely with suppliers helps tailor storage solutions to meet specific needs and regulatory requirements, ensuring safe and efficient fertiliser management.

The three types of bunding options for our GRP tanks:

  • Concrete Bunds: Solid and durable, suitable for long-term installations. Please click here to see how concrete bunds should look
  • Fabricated Bunds: Custom-designed to accommodate specific tank shapes and sizes.
  • Self-Bunded Tanks: Our self-bunded tanks feature a built-in secondary containment layer, providing a convenient and effective all-in-one solution.

You can rotate, zoom in and turn the tank to see all of its features

There are now over 13,000 Camplas SuperTanks in service worldwide some now over 50 years old. They were originally designed to BS4994 which is recognised as the most exacting of standards for GRP tanks as reflected by HSE Guidance PM75.

This has been confirmed by the testing of 20 year old tanks alongside new tanks of the same design and specification in conjunction with Kingston University which showed that there was no reduction in tensile strength after 20 years’ service in the harshest of conditions when used for UAN liquid fertiliser. Subsequently Camplas were awarded the prestigious Queens Award for Technological Achievement in 1987 for its range of SuperTanks™.
