    fertilizer

    hello teachers,

    I have a question regarding the term 'fertilizer'

    I've looked into the dictionary and I found that the term can be countable and uncountable.
    Hence I wonder if you could help me to choose the correct sentence from these three phrases:

    "Analysis of a fertilizer" or "Analysis of fertilizer" or "Analysis of a sample of fertilizer"

    I'd go for the last one.PLease advise.

    Thanks

    All are correct.

    Analysis of a fertilizer commonly used for growing tomatoes showed that it didn't contain what the manufacturer claimed that it did.

    Analysis of fertilizer to see if it contains what the manufacturers say it contains is the responsibility of the Department of Agriculture.

    Analysis of a sample of fertilizer showed that it didn't contain what the manufacturer claimed that it did.
