Approximately 45% of the total fertilizer applied annually in the U.S. is in the form of bulk blends. The bulk blending system developed in the immediate post World War II period when fertilizer use increased sharply. The most important refinement since its inception was the introduction on a large scale of granular-sized fertilizer materials which were particularly suitable for blending.
