Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: fertilizer

In reality fertilizer can mean hundreds of things -- bone meal, composted manure, fish emulsion, potassium nitrate, urea, fresh compost, etc. In this simulation you can apply several kinds of fertilizer with the bag tool, and you can make your own soil amendments with the browser. Tables of the types of N and P (organic, soluble, mineral) found in many types of fertilizer can be found in many garden books.

If auto fertilization is turned on, auto fertilizer application applies only soluble minerals -- nitrate and labile phosphorus.

How it works:
