The Principle of the Most Limiting Nutrient

For example: In the dry season, phosphorus is the third most limiting nutrient, therefore while it is still important, the protein and energy deficiencies as the first and second most limiting nutrients must be met before any results from phosphorus supplementation will be significantly noticeable.
