Why do the levels of nitrogen and phosphorus in fields decline when crops are harvested?

The levels of nitrogen and phousphorus in fields decline when

crops are harvested because the diversion of nitrates and phouspate

would deplate the soil unless the farmer replaced the missing

nutrients.

Hope this helped :)
