Main Source of Nutrition for Plants
The study of the chemical elements and compounds required for plant growth, metabolism, and external supply is known as plant nutrition. The plant is unable to complete a standard without it. Soil is an essential source of nutrients for plant growth. Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) are the three most important nutrients (K). The trio known as NPK is made up of them. Calcium, magnesium, and sulphur are also essential nutrients. Autotrophs are plants that produce their own food in the presence of sunlight. Sunlight energy is converted into chemical energy by plants. In the presence of chlorophyll, they produce their own food using carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight.
