Soils need fertility maintenance. Soil is a natural body of finely divided rocks,minerals and organic matter. Sand, silt, clay and organic matter help provide tilth, necessary aeration and favorable water intake rates, but they seldom maintain adequate plant food to sustain continuous healthy plant growth
- Boosting growth: One element known for its ability to boost plant growth is Nitrogen. It’s also a greening agent. Fertilizers rich in nitrogen are preferred because of their aforementioned advantages
- Acceleration of maturation: Phosphorus content in the fertilizers is responsible for the plants maturity. Farmers who need to accelerate plant development ought to apply phosphorus rich fertilizers.
- Enhanced resistance: Potassium in fertilizers can reinforce the stalks and straws of plants. Thus enabling them to hold more amount of water and be more impervious to drought conditions.
- Fertilizers can improve the quality of fruits and seeds, leading to better harvest and earnings
