Like humans, plants require a specific set of nutrients to ensure healthy growth and development. If a plant’s soil is lacking in any one of these necessary nutrients, the remaining nutrients are limited in their effectiveness in helping the plant to grow. Through the judicious use of both organic and inorganic fertilizers, farmers around the world are overcoming these limiting nutrient factors – growing healthier crops with higher yields and feeding the world with greater amounts of nutrient-rich foods.
