The performance of your plants is directly related to the degree of the fertility of your soil. Like humans, plants require certain elements to grow well and to remain healthy.

Below is a list of elements essential for plant growth.

Carbon (C)
Hydrogen (H)
Oxygen (O)
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)
Potassium (K)
Calcium (Ca)
Magnesium (Mg)
Sulfur (S)
Boron (B)
Chlorine (CI)
Copper (Cu)
Iron (Fe)
Manganese (Mn)
Molybdenum (Mo)
Zinc (Zn)  

Plants also contain Cobalt (Co), Iodine (I), Selenium (Se) and Sodium (Na), which are necessary to humans and animals which consume the plants, but which do not seem to be necessary for the survival of plants.  Aluminum (Al) and Silicon (Si) are also present in plants, but are not deemed necessary for humans nor animals for their survival.

Elements Required by Plants and Obtained From Soil and Fertilizers

Major Nutrients:  Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K)

Secondary Nutrients:  Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), and Sulfur (S)

Micronutrients or Trace Elements:  Boron (B), Chlorine (CI), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo), and Zinc (Zn)
