Fertilizer and Growth

Does different kinds of fertilzer effect the plant growth
If you have any other information about organic and inorganic
fertilizer please send it to me.
Plants need many different elements for different reasons, so you should
know what the particular plant and the soil it grows in need before choosing
a fertilizer. There are different compositions of fertilizers. Plants take
up nutrients in elemental form, so it does not matter whether the source of
the fertilizer is organic or inorganic, but there may be other reasons, like
effects on soil structure, for using one or the other.
