 Friends,  I  have  managed  to  get  some  salts  from  my  brothers  college  chemistry  lab
 salts  area  following,
 
 1-  KPO4  -  Potassium  Monophosphate
 2-  MgSo4  -  Magnesium  Sulphate
 
 3-  EDTA  powder  (only  know  that  its  EDTA)
 
 4  -  FeSo4  -  ferrous  sulphate
 
 the  quantity  of  all  is  in  volume,  similar  to  the  size  of  one  Mc  Burger  Surprised  
 
 
 please  tell  me  is  it  possible  to  make  macro  fertilizer  &  micro  fertilizer  from  this  &  how  do  i  make  it.

 Yadnesh,
 
 As  you  said  NPK,  you  still  dont  have  nitrogen  one  of  major  ingredient  of  macros.
 Phosphate  is  the  least  portion  of  macros,  hence  you  cant  use  this  mixture  to  dose  "K"  potassium  because  you  ll  be  overdosing  PO4  by  big  margin.
 {  RATIO  for  weekly  dose  needs  to  be  NO3  range  Nitrate  5-30  ppm  ,K+  range  potassium  10-30  ppm  ,PO4  range  phosphate  1.0-3.0  ppm  }
 
 
 FeSO4  is  quite  unstable,  so  you  cant  use  it  effectively,  but  still  can  try.
 EDTA  alone?  you  need  an  iron  chelate  Fe-EDTA,  so  ruled  out.
 
 
 For  the  macros  you  can  check  this,  its  very  straight  forward.  Micros  is  a  different  story.
