Definition of Plant Nutrition
The proper feeding of plant nutrition require 16 essential nutrients for plant growth. What’s more, it also refers to the ability for plants to absorb and break down this “food” into a form they can use.
Let’s talk more about these 16 different nutrients required for good plant nutrition. First thing to remember is there are three main elements for plants and trees are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). Correspondingly, they make up the trio known as NPK. What’s more, there are also important minerals like calcium, magnesium and sulfur. Plants also need micronutrients, which are tiny amounts of iron, manganese, zinc, copper, boron and molybdenum, known as trace elements. Last of all (but not least), carbon, hydrogen and oxygen are also parts of these 16 essential nutrients. The role these plant foods play in rooting and growth is really complex! Consequently, plant nutrition is an amazing process!
