These urban and suburban lands incline to be heavily compressed, poorly drained, short of organic matter, and poorly oxygenated. Even where soils have not been stricken, fertilization is usually needed as part of a sustaining program to step up plant vigor or to crest growth and improve lawn, tree and plant roots.

Trees and plants in commercial and residential landscape properties are usually fertilized to keep them healthy and attractive.

What Are the Benefits of Fertilizers?

Provides A Slow, Gradual Release Of Nutrients

When organic fertilizers are applied to soil, micro-organisms, such as fungi and bacteria present in the soil react on it and undergo processes that discharge nutrients, such as copper, calcium, potassium, and nitrogen. All these elements are present in the fertilizer and provide the ample amount of nutrients needed by the plants to grow. This helps provide to the stable growth of the plants irrespective of a change in soil temperature and weather.

A Positive Spike In Soil Fertility

Organic fertilizers help in preserving and restoring the fertility of soil. They utilize the microbes found in the soil to manufacture the required nutrients for the plant and in turn boost growth as well as long lasting fertility of the soil. They additionally improve the structure of the soil by preventing soil erosion, allowing for better plant growth during future seasons.

Friendly To The Environment

Organic fertilizers are decomposable and can be recycled and re-used continuously and therefore help to avert land pollution. They are manufactured from natural, left over products and wastes; thus they provide consumers with harmless and healthy food, protecting them from illness, such cancers, skin allergies, and other diseases which can come from toxins and chemicals found in some chemical fertilizers.

As they improve the fertility of the soil, the land can be used time and again for cultivation, which prevents the cutting down of trees for more land.

Availability and Economical

Organic fertilizers can be manufactured in farms on small quantity by using dead plants and leaves, kitchen waste, wild weeds, fish bone, and cow dung. Since they are easily available on most farms, they can be produced with very little amount of money.

Chemical Fertilizers

Chemical fertilizers have very few benefits when compared to organic fertilizers. Chemical fertilizers contain phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen in equal amounts and their phosphorous, potassium, and nitrogen ratio is 60% as compared to the 14% phosphorous, potassium, and nitrogen ratio for organic fertilizers. Chemical fertilizers are great in places with less fertile soil. At times, plants need immediate nutrition, which can only be achieved by applying chemical fertilizers.

How Much Fertilizer Should You Use?

Over-fertilizing can lead to excessive top growth, chemical burn and weakens your lawn. On the other hand, under-fertilizing results in a lawn that lacks color and lushness, results in more weed growth and increases the risk of diseases. Clearly, applying the right amount of fertilizer is very important.
