Asia Pacific Fertilizer Market

Fertilizer Market Growth in the Asia Pacific Region

Fertilizers contain chemical-based essential nutrients that enrich the plants and also helps in providing high water renetancy and helps crops to grow efficiently. Earlier farmers tend to use manures, where on the other side use of chemical-based fertilizers has been increased in order to overcome the plant deficiencies as it contains important plants nutrients which are mentioned below:

Nitrogen Fertilizer

Nitrogen fertilizers are obtaining from synthetic ammonia and nitric acid. This is proven efficient especially in the growth of the young plant development simultaneously it stimulated the healthy development of the fruits in the farms.

Phosphorus Fertilizer

Phosphorus fertilizer is high used fertilizer due to its high nutrients capacity and its salient physical properties which helps in root and seed development and in the plant maturation process. Farmers used phosphorus fertilizers in the wide production of grains like Wheat, Barley, and Vegetables.

Potassium Fertilizer

Potassium fertilizer is used widely especially at times of K deficiency. As it helps in forming proteins, transmit sugar and starch, and also able to control the disease which promotes the better health of the plants and crops.
