PLANT NUTRIENTS
 
Plants require nutrients in order to grow, develop and complete their life cycle. The supply of nutrients to plants should be balanced in order achieve maximum efficiency and so that these nutrients meet the needs of any particular plant and soil type.
 
Although a plant receives a natural supply of these nutrients from organic matter and soil minerals, this is not sufficient to satisfy the plant’s demands. The supply of nutrients must therefore be supplemented with fertilizers to meet the plant’s requirements during growth and to replenish soil reserves when the plant has been harvested.
 
There are two types of nutrients: Primary and Secondary. The primary or macro nutrients are Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K). These major nutrients are found in the soil but they are usually lacking, mainly because plants use large amount of these nutrients for their growth and survival. 
 
On the other hand, the secondary or micro nutrients are commonly known as Sulphur (S), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg). Other secondary nutrients which are essential for plant growth are Iron (Fe), Boron (Bo), Copper (Cu), Chloride (Cl), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo) and Cobalt (Co). Similar to primary nutrients, they are usually limited in the soil. Therefore, fertilization is needed from time to time to compensate for nutrient deficiency. 
 
Having been a key player for over 40 years in the Agricultural industry of Mauritius, MCFI has now acquired the expertise to develop a comprehensive range of fertilizers to meet the needs of local and international customers. MCFI also has the ability to formulate tailor-made recipes on demand. Here is a list of products that have contributed to the success the company over the years.
