Bulk blending is usually carried out batchwise in batches of 1- to 8-ton size, thus each batch can be custom formulated for individual farmer requirements. In addition to the major nutrient materials, a number of other materials often are incorporated in bulk blends, such as secondary and micronutrients, herbicides, pesticides, anticaking conditioners, and seeds.
