Importance’s Of Fertilizers


It’s a method whereby soil original packing s altered creating small holes essential for air penetration, water and nutrients.

Fertilizers are natural or synthetic materials added to the soil, plants or part of the plant which improves the growth, Auburn fertilization and yielding of the plants, this is achieved by either the fertilizers providing nutrients or enhancing effectiveness of the soil to aerate or increase its water retention.

Fertilizers increase the ability of soils to produce maximum, give healthy and products quality and this can be achieved through aeration and good water retention and it’s done through adjustment of the soils composition.

Different nutrients have different  purposes on the plants ,potassium gives strong growth, promotes flowering ;nitrogen gives plants better leaf growth while phosphorus enables in root ,flower and seed development.

As much as fertilizers improve soils fertility and yield production, they should be applied regarding some factors like the type of soil and plants as some can make their own nutrients from the atmosphere like legumes.

For higher yielding and productions, Fort Wayne aeration of the soil  and application of fertilizers should be the first priority as they increase plants and root growth; supply of oxygen to the roots and removal of carbon dioxide is very essential for healthy plant growth. Because of inadequate oxygen supply in the soils, plants may retard or completely die when carbon dioxide accumulates fully.

The rate of microbial activity in the soil is determined by how well the soil is aerated as these microorganism require oxygen as they are still living things.

Gases like carbon dioxide ,hydrogen sulphide gases and ferrous oxides are very toxic to the microorganism and if they mount on the crop might end up killing both of them or affecting flowering.

Crops need fertilizers for faster seed development and even the green color for photosynthesis which determines the type of yields the plant will give.

Strengthening of straws and stalks by nutrients like potassium will help the plants to hold water in cases of drought or lack of water to the plants.

Fertility of soils is determined by how the soil is aerated and how much fertilizer is in that soil. Fertilizer’s function is to improve fertility and texture and fertilizers like manure serves the best soil enhancer eradicating soil problems.

Fertilizers give farms a long-lasting ability to yield and produce well as one application might run for a longer period boosting yields even for more than one season. Manures are the best as they are natural.
