Fertilizer is a key tool used by agricultural companies to create nutrient-rich soil that promotes healthy crops. The following two reports explore the global fertilizer market and where it's headed.
As most green thumbs know, fertilizer is a nutrient-rich substance that's added to soil for the purpose of promoting healthier crops. Although there are dozens of different types of fertilizer on the market, most contain three main ingredients: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Known as the macronutrients, these ingredients stimulate plant growth while protecting against nutrient deficiencies in the process.
In addition to the macronutrients, fertilizers may contain other ingredients like calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, zinc, boron and cobalt.
These ingredients are less common than micronutrients, however. Nonetheless, many fertilizer manufacturers add them to their products.
There are also organic fertilizers, who are defined as being biologic in nature. This is in stark contrast to synthetic fertilizers, which consist strictly of synthetic, man-made ingredients. Whether it's made of biologic or synthetic ingredients, though, all fertilizers have the same fundamental purpose of increasing nutrients in the soil to support plant growth and wellness.

The Global Water-Soluble Fertilizer Market Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a second professional study of the global fertilizers market, though it focuses specifically on water-soluble fertilizers. As the name suggests, water-soluble fertilizer is characterized by its ability to dissolve in water. This is in stark contrast to traditional granular fertilizers, which often sit on the soil. Because water-soluble fertilizer dissolves in water, it's absorbed more quickly and thoroughly by plants, thus making it a popular choice among farmers and agricultural companies.
Some of the key water-soluble fertilizer vendors profiled in this report include Agrium Inc., Israel Chemical Ltd.(Icl), Sociedad Quimica Y Minera De Chile(Sqm), K+S Aktiengesellschaft, Yara International Asa, Haifa Chemicals Ltd., Compo Gmbh & Co.Kg, Coromandel International Ltd., The Mosaic Company, Hebei Monband Water Soluble Fertilizer Co.Ltd. and others.
