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 components help in increasing the durability and strength of the agricultural land.
