Soil Health

  • by
  • Without Soil testing, cultivation leads to production loss. Yield Per acre or hectare would be less.
  • It will make a huge loss to your Income.
  • Nitrogen (N) – Nitrogen is largely responsible for the growth of leaves on the plant.
  • Phosphorus (P) – Phosphorus is largely responsible for root growth and flower and fruit development.
  • Potassium (K) – Potassium is a nutrient that helps the overall functions of the plant perform correctly.

For example:

  • If you are growing leafy vegetables, you may want to apply a fertilizer that has a higher nitrogen number to encourage leafy growth.
  • If you are growing flowers, you may want to apply a fertilizer that has a higher phosphorus number to encourage more blooms.
  • Soil Health essential to plants growth cycle.
  • Based on the fertility content of the soil, you can decide which crop / plant can be cultivated in this soil.
  • The Major Essential nutrients required by plants.
  • The macronutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, calcium and magnesium) are required in relatively large quantities by plants; measured by either a percentage or mg/kg.
