Plant growth and development are directly depended on the source of nutrients. Basically, plants need different type of nutrients which are categories into two groups i.e. macro nutrients and micro nutrients according to their requirements. These nutrients include Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), Boron (B), Sulphur (S), Magnesium (Mg) etc. In the plant body, many nutrients influence biochemical processes as well as provide resistance against diseases and finally disturb the quality of crops. According to fast increasing in the world population and the decreasing trend in yields of crop make food safety a main challenge. That’s why balanced application of nutrients is very important to rise the crop yield and to attain the necessary increase in the production of food. Furthermore, nutrients play a significant role in fertility of soil and make it more productive for the growth of plant. This review article will discuss the recent information that concerning about the nutrients and their use in sustainable agriculture for the growth of plant.

Keywords: Sustainable Agriculture; Biochemical processes; Micro Nutrients; Macro Nutrients; Resistance.
