Plant Nutrition

Plants require macro-and micronutrients, each of which is critical to completing a plant's life cycle. Adequate nutrient supply has a major impact on plant growth and is therefore of crucial importance in agriculture.

Essential Nutrients:

From atmosphere through photosynthesis are Hydrogen, Carbon and Oxygen.

From the soil are Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sulfur, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Boron, Manganese, Zinc, Molybdenum and Copper.

Soil is a major nutrient source that plants need to grow. Nitrogen (N), potassium (K) and phosphorus (P) are the three main nutrients.

It also includes the investigation of mineral digestion of plants; physiology of yield advancement; natural and mineral preparation with respect to their effects on the yield and nature of plants; and environmental parts of plant sustenance.
