    The problem is you can't really know what minerals to add until your soil has been tested and analyzed. Be careful about pouring on fertilizer without knowing what the mineral content of your soil is. At the least you can be wasting your time and money, at worst you could overdose the soil and make it unusable. If soil testing is not available to you, I don't know how you can avoid gambling that you are doing the right thing - unless you live in a region that has a large area of the same soil throughout and you can draw from the experience of others.
