Aqua ammonia (NH3∙H2O) (ammonia water) is produced by dissolving of ammonia gas in the water. There are two grades depending on the purpose: Grade «А» – used for industrial purpose. Grade «B» – used in agriculture as effective fertilizer for top-dressing of tilled crops. Use of ammonia water in agriculture allows sharply reducing labor costs due to full mechanization of the process of transportation, storage and application of fertilizers.
