EurekaMag.com has newly published 6,939 references and abstracts on mineral fertilizers. The site's Research Category covers this inorganic material of synthetic origin that is added to soil to supply one or more plant nutrients essential to the growth of plants. The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Research Section 15 provides many scientific studies on the effects of additions of mineral fertilizers to promote plant and crop growth and thereby improve yields of important crops. Mineral fertilizers contain inorganic substances, i.e., salts, containing nutrients required by plants. They affect the physical, chemical, and biologic properties of soil and plants. Depending on the properties of the soil, mineral fertilizers undergo various changes that influence the solubility of their nutrients which affect their availability to plants.
The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Research Chapter 14025 presents a selection of the current total of 6,939 references and abstracts on mineral fertilizers including articles on effects of mineral fertilizers and manures on the phosphorus content of a clay soil and on crop yields and quality in a long-term crop rotation, effects of mineral fertilizers on content of vitamin C in potato tubers, effects of mineral fertilizers on humification of lucerne roots and of dung in serozems, effects of mineral fertilizers on vegetable yields and quality, effect of mineral fertilizing with manuring on the carotene and vitamin-C content of green kale, and on effect of mineral nutrition on metabolic change induced in crop plant roots.
