- Organic Fertilizers vs. Synthetic - |
Excerpt from the Organic Gardener's Basics by George Van Patten
Organic fertilizers, unlike many chemical fertilizers, continually build the soil and promote better structure as well as nourish soil life.
The growth or yield attained by using either chemical or organic fertilizers is about the same. However, in the long run, many organic fertilizers are much more productive than chemical ones because they improve soil structure and increase the soil's ability to hold moisture and nutrients. The chemical fertilizers do not build soil and can build up to toxic proportions after continued use. Organic fertilizers on the other hand, continually build the soil, promote better structure, and foster soil organism growth. The addition of organic fertilizers over a long period enhances the soil life, another plus for the great majority of garden plants.
The nutrients in organic fertilizers may vary greatly depending upon source, age, erosion, or climate. For exact nutrient content, consult the suppliers specifications.
Read the labels and literature on the organic fertilizers you plan to use. Keep in mind that the plants must convert the nutrients to a chemical form before they are useable, no matter what the source.

- Are Biological Fertilizers safe? -
Biological fertilizers are not chemical based and are generally comprised of materials and extracts derived from natural sources. Generally they are broad spectrum and non-toxic to animals, plants and humans. For example, CB-FVR and CB-RSG contain beneficial microorganisms (BM), a mixed cultured solution with macro and micro nutrients, amino acids, enzymes, proteins, vitamins and minerals. The ingredients are materials and extracts derived from natural sedimentary deposits of organic origin. They are safe for the environment and are non-toxic to animals plants and humans.
|WHERE DO AGRO CHEMICALS GO?
People feel ill and don't really know why birds, fish and animals sicken and die, streams are polluted, ugly, unclean, Clear, sparkling water can nowhere be seen. |
Poisonous chemicals invade our wells creating problems, but still the stuff sells. Now the folks who concoct this toxic brew surely know of the hazards it poses too. But love of money, evil and strong Dulls their conscience to right and wrong.
If only their talents were directed to do diligent research for something new, something non-toxic of infinite worth to stop pollution on our good earth.
