Author(s): P Manimaran, Rajasekar P, Rameshkumar D and Jaison M
Abstract: Nutrients play a vital role in plants to survive and produce quality production. Roses needs frequent supply of plant nutrients to produce good growth and beautiful flowers. In addition to the beautiful foliage and flowers, other benefits result from a desirable fertilization program. A vigorous healthy rose can better withstand attacks by diseases and insects than those struggling for survival. They can also better withstand wind damage and adverse weather conditions. Roses require vigorous pruning, they regularly lose nutrients, which must be replaced to guarantee a healthy bloom every season. Nutrients are divided into two categories are macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients are the primary nutrients and there are three key nutrients which plants need in large quantities viz., Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). Micronutrients or trace minerals are required in smaller quantities but are still vital to rose plants.
