Fertilizers (Items)[edit | edit source]

In Agriculture fertilizers are used to amend soil nutrients and can be crafted at the Farmer's Table. They change the value of the primary plant nutrients: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K). Multiple different types can be crafted at the Farmer's Table by combining items with different fillers.

Soil composition[edit | edit source]

A player using the Soil Sampler can determine the composition of the soil: temperature, moisture content, and nutrients. As plants deplete nutrients through Farming, a farmer can replenish the Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K) levels through applying different fertilizers. Caring for soil nutrients is key to achieving continual high yields and optimum growing conditions. To learn more about controlling temperature and moisture content see Agriculture.

Types of Fertilizers[edit | edit source]

There are multiple different types of fertilizers that can be crafted at the Farmer's Table, each with it's own recipe and effects. A comprehensive overview of fertilizer types (as of 0.7.4.6) follows:
