Vitreous materials find wide spread application in modern civilization. This review examines the role of vitreous fertilizers towards the agricultural aspects and its related complexity. This review article emphasizes particularly the role of vitreous fertilizers which are actually known as slow or controlled release fertilizers having the latest concept of fertilizer technology in which plant roots undergo extraction of ions by certain chemical exchange reaction through hydrolysis. It is thus a new challenge for ceramic researchers and engineers to design or formulate some useful glass compositions for these agriculture challenges coming before the world community by the over use of chemical fertilizer for enhancing the agriculture production. This kind of attempt helps in solving the issues in respect of the removal of non-fertility and improving the current situation related to fertilizers.
