Why Do We Need Fertilizers?

It is essential to the height and growth speed of a crop to use Fertilizer. Without this substance, the plant doesn't get the chemical elements needed for growth. Also, these Fertilizers ensure the best use of land and water.

How Do Fertilizers Work?

There are three main ingredients in Fertilizer

  1. Nitrogen- increases capacity of growing new stems, flowers, or fruit
  2. Phosphorus- helps produce organic oils, and starch
  3. Potassium- fights off disease, builds protein, and is needed for the process of photosynthesis

Without these ingredients, fertilizer would be impossible to create.
