Plants need a plethora of different nutrients to survive. Many people have heard about Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium (N-P-K) that is widely used and displayed on the front of fertilizer packaging. However, just as important are secondary nutrients. These nutrients are referred to as secondary because they are needed at much smaller quantities than N, P, and K.
