Plant nutrients are essential building blocks of crops. Any deficiency of a single plant nutrient will reduce crop growth, which in turn will reduce yield and revenue for the grower. It is therefore important that all crop nutrients are available to the crop at the required rate and balance that is necessary for the crop.
- Since most soils can have deficiencies of even multiple nutrients, mineral fertilizer provide the nutrients needed by the crop. On a site with nutrient deficiency, the application of fertilizer will usually lead to a crop yield increase that is multiple of the yield obtained without fertilizer.
- Many studies have confirmed that a grower which invest in mineral nitrogen fertilizer receive at harvest time about 5 to 7 times the money invested because of the improved crop yield.
