Fertilizers

Why Plants Need Fertilizers?

To grow healthy crops full of nutrients, farmers need to ensure they have healthy soil. Without fertilizers, nature struggles to replenish the nutrients in the soil. Chemical ingredients help create fertilizers that promote plant growth and are cost effective, too.

What is Fertilizer Used For?

Often, the plants have few possibilities to avoid nutrient deficiencies without the help of fertilizers. Since plants are not capable of absorbing it from the air directly, the soil is their only means of acquiring this important nutrient. Fertilizers are needed to boost nutritional levels.

What Benefits of Fertilizers?

With the global population steadily growing, it is important that enough crops are produced each year to provide food, clothing and other agricultural products to people around the world. Crops such as corn, wheat and cotton receive nutrients from the soil they are grown in.

Plants need nutrients to grow which they absorb from the soil via the plant’s root system. Unless the nutrients are replenished, the soil’s productive capacity declines with every harvest.

What Types of fertilizer?

Mineral Firtilizers

Nitrogen-based products make up by far the largest fertilizer group, followed by fertilizers based on phosphorus and potassium. Fertilizers are available in straight and compound forms, based on one major nutrient or two or more nutrients respectively. Straight fertilizers account for the majority (78%) of total fertilizer use in Europe and are often based on meeting the needs of a specific crop. Compound NPK fertilizers account for the remaining consumption and primarily are available in two distinct types: blended and complex fertilizers.
