When producers pay special attention to managing phosphorus (P), it can lead to profitable crop production. The best way to use fertilizers to meet P requirements changes with crop, soil properties and environmental conditions. Finding the best P source Inorganic commercial P fertilizers have evolved over the last several decades into a refined, predictable product.

Plus. NPK fertilizers are three-component fertilizers providing nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. NPK rating is a rating system describing the amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in a fertilizer.

NPK ratings consist of three numbers separated by dashes (e.g., or ) describing the chemical content of fertilizers.
