Fertilizer: Nutrients

A well-balanced supply of nutrients increases yields and enhances crop quality, both of which are necessary to support growing demand.

 

Of these nutrients, plants need nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) most of all.

 

Bunge sells NPK fertilizers that improve plant's root production, leaf and stem growth, flowering and fruiting, and resistance to pests and disease.

 

Nitrogen results in vigorous growth and a plant's dark green color.

 

Phosphorus promotes improved crop quality, healthy root growth and earlier crop maturity.

Potassium enables plants to withstand extreme temperatures, drought, diseases and pests.

It also increases water-use efficiency and enhances crop quality.  It all adds up to a better harvest.
