How do fertilizers work?

Postby RushHourable » Sun Aug 25, 2013 12:47 pm

Hey guys,
why does putting more phosphate, more nitrogen and more potassium onto the plant/into the soil increases the plant growth? What is the job of the 3?

thanks in advance :D

phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium are important elements for the plant and the plant is not able to get them from the air (as carbon, oxygen and hydrogen), thus they are limiting

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
