An all-purpose fertilizer is a type of fertilizer that includes adequate amounts of the three core chemicals to ensure proper growth: nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium (NPK).
A plant’s growth and the quality of its components depend on several factors such as temperature, light intensity, water, and chemical nutrients. Plants mostly need three core chemicals.
Each chemical serves a different purpose. Nitrogen is responsible for the physical growth of plants, phosphorus is important for a plant’s respiration, and potassium is necessary to overcome various diseases.
An all-purpose fertilizer may also be known as a general-purpose fertilizer.
