Disadvantages of Chemical Fertilizers

  • Chemical fertilizers are primarily made from nonrenewable sources, including fossil fuels.
  • Chemical fertilizers do not promote soil life or soil health, and even do not include the decaying matter necessary to improve soil structure. In fact, chemical fertilizers don’t replace many trace elements that are gradually depleted by repeated crop plantings, resulting in long-term damage to the soil.
  • Chemical fertilizers contain nutrients that are readily available, but this creates the danger of over fertilization. This can kill the plants and upset the entire ecosystem.
  • Chemical fertilizers tend to leach, or drain away from the plant, which requires additional applications.
  • Repeated applications may result in a toxic buildup of chemicals such as arsenic, cadmium, and uranium in the soil. These toxic chemicals can eventually make their way into your fruits and vegetables.
  • Long-term use of chemical fertilizer can change the soil pH, upset beneficial microbial ecosystems, increase pests, and even contribute to the release of greenhouse gases.

Advantages of using Organic Fertilizers

  • As organic fertilizers break down, they improve the structure of the soil and increase its ability to hold water and nutrients. Over time, organic fertilizers will make your soil–and plants–healthy and strong.
  • Organic fertilizers release slowly into the soil, whichs makes it very difficult to overfertilize and harm your plants.
  • There’s little to no risk of toxic buildups of chemicals and salts that can be deadly to plants.
  • Organic fertilizers are renewable, biodegradable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly.
