Plants require 14 essential nutrients for healthy growth. The absence of any one nutrient in the soil can limit plant growth, even when all other plant nutrients are present in adequate amounts. The three micro-nutrients that are most essential for food production and quality are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
Fertilizer placement in relation to the seed is the key to successful plant growth. Soil types play a large role in what method of fertilizer application should be used (direct or split), so we recommend you consult with your agronomist on which fitting will work best for your agricultural program.
