How might exposure to high amounts of sun light effect the quality or effectiveness of a fertilizer?
Question Date: 2012-01-12
Answer 1:

This may depend on whether or not sunlight is the limiting component to plant growth. Only if the plants were limited by nutrients would fertilizer help and in the same way, only if the plant is not receiving enough sun, will sun help the plant grow.

Answer 2:

I don't believe sunlight directly effects fertilizer. However, the plants themselves are very sensitive to the correct amount of sunlight.
