Fertilizer is a very soft material, having a hardness of 2. At 125 °C it melts into Dirt.
- Duplicants with Crop Tending Skill can use Fertilizer to increase Plants growth rate in Farm Station.
- Sage Hatch can eat up to 140 kg of Fertilizer per cycle and excrete Coal with a 1:1 ratio.
In the Spaced Out! DLC, Fertilizer can be used as solid oxidizer for rockets. Although its efficiency is the least among oxidizers, Fertilizer is far easier to handle than the others.
- However, rockets can consume hundreds of kilos of it on just one trip; those hundreds of kilos could have been used for farms across many cycles.
Fertilizer increases plants growth rate by +100% for one cycle. It can be useful on plants with long growth cycles or high resource requirements for normal growth, as the resource requirement doesn't double.
Fertilizer has no effect on Mealwood.
