Fertilizer Terms Guide
pH measures soil
acidity or alkalinity. Your soil's pH level determines how
well plants are able to draw nutrients they need from the
soil. Because soil pH levels tend to change over time, it's
important to test it regularly.
Nitrogen in you
soil affects the part of the plant above the ground,
especially the green, leafy sections. Correct nitrogen
levels promote healthy, green foliage and lawns. Soil
nitrogen is easily washed away by rain. For the reason, you
should test your nitrogen regularly.
Phosphorus - Phosphorus
promotes strong root formation and root system development.
Phosphorus also contributes to quicker flower and fruit
production by helping protect the plant against disease and
poor weather conditions.
Seed formation and germination in flowers, fruits and vegetables depend on
potassium. Proper potassium levels in your soil will produce
better-tasting fruits and vegetables.
N - Nitrogen;
Lawns require a large amount of this to promote growth, color
and general vigor. Fertilization using a slow-release
high N content is important to both warm & cool season
P - Phosphorous;
Stimulates early root growth to ensure seedlings develop properly.
Freshly seeded lawns require a fertilizer with a high
phosphorus content. Also, P is necessary for proper
plant cell division, which results in a strong, healthy
and sturdy grass plant. *exception Centipede
K - Potassium;
Strengthens root structure and increases disease resistance,
improving the overall hardiness of grass plants.
