The benefits of NPK fertilizer
The following are the benefits of suing NPK fertilizer:
The benefits of Nitrogen (N)
Nitrogen promotes the production of chlorophyll in plants. This also makes the process of photosynthesis to be efficient. Without photosynthesis, the plant will not be able to make its food and its growth will be negatively affected.
Nitrogen promotes the growth of the key plant tissues like the leaves. The leaves enable the process of photosynthesis.
Nitrogen aids the plants DNA.
Nitrogen promotes the production of amino acid in plants.
The benefits of Phosphorus (P)
Phosphorus improves the growth of the plant’s roots. Bigger roots enable the plants to extract water and nutrients from the soil in an optimal manner. This can improve the yield of the crop.
Phosphorus aids the production of flowers in plants.
Phosphorus can also improve the process of nitrogen fixation in leguminous plants.
Phosphorus aids cells development in plants.
The benefits of Potassium (K)
Potassium aids the movement of water, carbohydrate and nutrients in plant tissues.
Potassium can help in improving the quality, taste, texture and look of fruits.
Potassium reduces water loss and promotes turgidity in fruits and plants.
Potassium can help plants to better withstand adverse weather conditions like heat and cold.
It helps in regulating the exchange of CO2.
Potassium also improves the process of photosynthesis.
Potassium can promote the development of healthy roots.
