These essential elementary minerals for plant growth can be sub-catergories as macro-nutrients like Nitrogen(N), Phosphorus(P), Potassium(K), Calcium(Ca), Magnesium(Mg), Sulphur(S) & Carbon(C),  as well as micro-nutrients or trace elements such as Boron(B), Chlorine(Cl), Cobalt(Co), Copper(Cu), Iron(Fe), Manganese(Mn), Molydemun(Mo) and Zinc(Zn).
