Ammonium sulphate is a commonly used fertiliser for lawns. It provides the grass with much-needed nitrogen to help it grow well. Nitrogen is one of the fertilisers that lawns and other plants need. The fertiliser number for ammonium sulphate is 21-0-0. This means it is 21 per cent nitrogen with 0 per cent phosphorus and potassium. Apply ammonium sulphate only when there is a need for nitrogen-only fertilisation.
