BIO BASED PLANT NUTRIENTS | SUSTAINABLE
There are seventeen
nutrients that, when applied to soil, play a major role in
determining plant health and crop yield.
In order for
plants to absorb these nutrients, the nutrients must be dissolved.
When nutrients are dissolved, they are in a form called "ions" and
are electrically charged...
