Fertilizers basically are the products that enhance the levels of available plant nutrients and the chemical and physical characteristics of soil, thereby directly or indirectly improving plant growth, yield, and quality.In order for crops to grow, three principal soil nutrients are required: nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). As each harvest removes these nutrients in the form of crops, they must be replenished to prevent the land from becoming barren. These fertilizer componentshelp in increasing the durability and strength of the agricultural land.The global fertilizer market is segmented according to the different types of fertilizers such as organic fertilizer, inorganic fertilizer and bio fertilizer. Among these different types of fertilizers, organic fertilizers dominate the overall market in terms of consumption and revenue owing to its renewable nature, sustainability and environment friendliness.
