What is Fertilizer?
Fertilizer is any substance added to the soil to provide the chemical elements necessary for plant nutrition. Plants need elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, boron and in some cases molybdenum in order to grow and survive. Among them, the nitrogen, phosphate and potassium are the most important ones. Fertilizers are substances that contain the nutrients necessary for the growth of plants.
Although soil and water are sufficient to provide most of these nutrients, in many cases the soil and water combination may lack some nutrients. In such cases, the soil should be supplemented with fertilizers.
Benefits of Fertilizer
- It ensures that the plants receive the minerals and elements they need.
- It provides a continuous and effective benefit for the development of plants and for the yield.
- It balances the PH value of the soil, which is very important for plants.
- It improves the quality of the yield and crops and extends the shelf life.
- Quality and natural fertilizers will also increase the mineral richness of the soil and will contribute to a good yield from your crops in the next year.
