Explanations and Various of Fertilizer


Fertilizer is a particular material or organic compound / inorganic medium were added to the plant or plants with the aim to supplement the availability of nutrients needed by plants so that the plant can produce well.


Fertilizers contain the necessary raw materials plant growth and development, including macro nutrients such as nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K) and micro minerals, such as manganese (Mn), Iron (Fe), zinc (Zn) , Boron (B), Cobalt (Co), etc.. Fertilizer materials can be either organic material or inorganic (mineral).


The earliest raw materials of fertilizer is animal dung, crop residual weathering and wood charcoal. Fertilizers derived from natural ingredients or the remnants of living things is known as organic fertilizer.


While Inorganic Fertilizer or often known as Chemical Fertilizer is the result of the engineering process of the chemicals or chemical fertilizer manufacturer. Fertilizer application should be tailored to the needs of plant nutrients with the right dose of fertilizer because too much or too little will interfere with plant growth and damage the soil ecosystem. Currently being a trend called Biological Fertilizer. Biological fertilizer is a fertilizer that is derived from living organisms (microorganisms) that is very small. These microbes are considered capable of improving soil fertility and increase crop production.


The use of fertilizers can be directly mixed / sprayed on the soil or sprayed on plants, either in the leaves, stems or on fruit.
