Fertilizer combines a special mix of plant nutrition with beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi to make sure your plants are covered from leaf tip to root hair. Organic fertilizers play a vital and significant role in supporting. They are a kinder, gentler way to give plants the nutrients they need. Organic fertilizers usually come from plants, animals, or minerals and contain a variety of nutrients to enhance the soil ecosystem. Synthetic fertilizers don’t enhance soil life or add organic matter.
Organics such as manures, powdered rocks (such as lime, rock phosphate, and greensand), blood meal, bone meal, wood ash and compost all contain important micronutrients and their texture will improve soil quality rather than degrading it.
The organic fertilizers cannot damage plants or the environment. They are applied to plants or soils to improve soil fertility, plant vigour, produce quality and yield. Other benefits for using organic fertilizers over synthetics are:
- They release their nutrients more slowly in the soil, when the plants need them, so they last longer.
- The nutrients are contained in complex molecules that won’t leach away with the first rain.
- They are less likely to burn the young roots of seedlings. Synthetic fertilizers are made from mineral salts that can kill roots as well as soil microbes if applied improperly.
- They enhance soil health by nurturing (or at least not harming) the soil microbes that help make soil nutrients available to plants. These fertilizers contain carbonaceous materials of plant and/or animal origin, whose main function is to maintain or increase the soil organic matter content.
- They are such fertilizer whose main function is to provide nutrients under organic forms from organic materials of plant and/or animal origin.
- They are the boosters for nutrient efficiency and organic matter content in the soil
- Also, as empirically demonstrated, organic-based fertilizers help to restore and maintain soil fertility to nurture plant growth
- They enhance the quality attributes of produce as well as yield
- Organic based fertilisers enhance the biological activity and biodiversity of soils for sustainable agriculture benefits
- They also facilitate the slow release of nutrients in response to the dynamic needs of plants
- Boost the efficiency of water use to render crops more resilient and drought-resistant
- Reduce the impact of farming and safeguard ecosystems by minimizing leaching
- Enhance crop resistance to erosion by improving the soil’s organic matter content.
- Improve the efficiency of resource use by incorporating natural raw materials.
