Plants Need Nitrogen

Nitrogen (N) fertilizers are common in farming because N is needed in large quantities to grow most crops.

However, because nitrogen tends to move around the environment, itís important to properly manage fertilizer application so that the plants can absorb most of the nitrogen before it's leached from the soil.

Overuse of fertilizers can lead to groundwater contamination and economic losses to farmers.
