Price of Fertilizers to Increase Production Cost of Agriculture by 0.15 percentPrice of Fertilizers to Increase Production Cost of Agriculture by 0.15 percent

Fertilizers, as intermediate input to the production process, account for 30-40 percent of total cost of production of agricultural crops. Fertilizers are natural or synthetic chemical substance or mixture used to enrich soil so as to promote plant growth. The three common nutritional elements that are present in fertilizers are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Fertilizers are commonly used in food crops like palay and corn. Ideally, palay farmers should use six bags of fertilizer to ensure a harvest of four to seven tons of rice per hectare, though many farmers apply more to boost production. Meanwhile, 2.96 of fertilizer bags are needed for white corn and 4.80 bags for yellow corn. Banana, which is one of the major agricultural crops, needs six lbs of fertilizers per tree.
