Fertilizers are necessary for crops, gardens and farming operations, providing essential nutrients to developing flowers, trees and vegetation. They work essentially as a multi-vitamin for the plant world. Many fertilizers also help the soil to retain water better and allow the air to flow freely for healthy roots.

Granular in nature, dry fertilizers provide nutrients for plants that release over a period of time. Farmers will either mix dry fertilizer into the soil before planting or top-dress already planted crops by spreading fertilizer over the top of a field.
A fertilizer concentrate mixed with water produces what’s known as liquid fertilizer. Farms use liquid fertilizers primarily for the control and flexibility of them. It’s simple to add more or less of a fertilizer concentrate to water so to provide as effective a fertilizer as you require.
Modern industrial agriculture heavily depends on the use of fertilizers for crop production, as there are many benefits to its use. For example, they contain the primary plant nutrients of potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorous. They are designated in specific ratios customized for the specific growth requirements of crops, such as corn, lettuce and tomatoes.
The nutrients gained from fertilizers allow crops to thrive even in depleted soils, as the plant’s basic nutritional requirements are still being met. For example, here are some of the benefits:
