The Role Of NPK

(N) Nitrogen: Nitrogen aids plants in making proteins that are used for healthy foliage growth. Excess causes rapid growth but poor flowering, deficiency causes stunted growth.

(P) Phosphorous: Phosphorous aids in strong root growth as well as flower development and larger seeds. Excess causes poor growth and bleaching (yellow leaves), deficiency causes leaf death.

(K) Potassium: Potassium aids in overall plant health and development of the crop. Excess can cause (N) and (P) uptake to be blocked, deficiencies can lead to disease and general poor health.
