Keywords: Fluid fertilisers, Physical standards, Measurement protocols.
This paper describes work undertaken between 1985 and 1996 to devise methods suitable for measuring some of the more important physical characteristics in fluid fertilisers. It covers the determination of density, saturation temperature and a range of rheological properties, which have a specific bearing on handling and storage.
