The basic nutrients are carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which are composed primarily of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen molecules plus smaller amounts of other elements. Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium are important components, and there are also the so-called micronutrients, which are: calcium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, copper, boron, chlorine, manganese, molbdenum, and zinc.
