Food is an integral part of all our lives and we are all dependent on mother earth for it. Do you have any idea that most of the food we consume has been grown with the help of fertilisers which are the major source of energy and nutrients for crops and plants? Like humans, they too need a proper dose of nutrients to nurture themselves. Fertilisers fulfil this requirement and help plants grow in an appropriate manner. Precisely, fertilisers are substances that are added to the soil to improve fertility and increasing capacity, which in turn enhances farm productivity.
Though there is no specific time known about the first use of fertilisers, a few studies reveal that fertilizing the crops with manure started some 8000 years ago. The Europeans were the first to use the technique of fertilizing the crops. According to some studies, the Egyptian, Babylonian, and Roman farmers used manure to improve land productivity. Initially, ashes of wood were used as manure. With time, technology developed, and it became more refined. New ingredients were discovered that improved the yield. The Romans used animal excrements on the basis of soil and plant grown. Also, clay, vegetable wastes, and some sort of trash were used in farming. In the present times, new technological advancements and the use of fertilisers have completely changed the game of the farming sector. Thanks to the famous scientists Francis Bacon, and Johann Glauber, who with their organised research and knowledge, came up with new findings and fertiliser technologies which strengthened the modern farming.
Importance of Fertilisers
It is quite challenging to meet the demands of the increasing population with limited resources. Lack of nutrients, pests and loss of soil fertility has led to a decrease in agricultural production.
Fertilisers can be important to the plants in the following ways:
- Fertilisers increase the tolerance of the plants towards pests. This has reduced their dependency on herbicides and insecticides, thereby producing healthier crops.
- Fertilisers enhance the water holding capacity of the plants and increase the root depth.
- The potassium content in the fertilisers strengthens the stalks and straws of the plants.
- The presence of phosphorus in the fertiliser aids in the formation of seeds and faster growth of roots.
- The Nitrogen content which is present in the fertilisers enhances the growth of the plants.
