  Plant nutrition is simply a study of chemical compounds which is required for optimum plant growth as well as metabolism. The nutrition of green plant is therefore, solely inorganic. It is, in fact, commonly called mineral nutrition. Thus, elements absorbed from the soil by roots are called as plant nutrients or mineral nutrients. The plant requires 17 essential nutrients which is required for their growth and optimum development. It is called insufficient whether the amount of essential plant nutrient is below which required for optimum yields. It is called toxic when the concentration of essential elements is sufficiently high which may inhibit plant growth to a greater extent. It is called excessive if the concentration of the essential nutrient is sufficiently high.
