initials for Nitrogen-Phosphate-Potash.
Abbreviation for the primary elements, nitrogen phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). In the U.S., the percentages of these elements are required to be on the front label of all fertilizers. The percentages appear as numbers, i.e., 14-12-14, where the first number is always N, the second number is always P, and the third number is always K.
acronym for the three major plant nutrients contained in manure, compost and fertilizers. 'N' is for nitrogen, 'P' is for phosphorous, and 'K' is for potassium.
Chemical symbols for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, the three major nutrients in fertilizer.
Fertilizer containing the nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium
Acronym for the three major plant nutrients contained in manure, compost and fertilizers, and used to describe the amounts of each readily available. N is for nitrogen, P for phosphorus, and K for potassium
The chemical symbols for Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), and Potassium (K),an abbreviation that may be used in denoting the relative proportions of these - elements as ingredients of a fertilizer.
Compound fertilizer containing Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potash NS Fertilizer containing Nitrogen and Sulphur
Abbreviation for Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K), the three elements present in all commerical fertilizers sold thanks to Baron Justus von Liebig, a 19th-century German chemist, who discovered that plants rely on this trio of nutrients. The NPK approach to soil fertility is considered reductive by organic farmers, who believe that soil is part of an ecosystem we have yet to fully comprehend.
