The difference between organic fertilizer and chemical fertilizer

What are organic fertilizers and chemical fertilizers

1.Organic fertilizer is mainly derived from plants and/or animals, and is applied to the soil to provide plant nutrition as a carbonaceous material with its main function.

2.Chemical fertilizers are fertilizers made by chemical methods, and fertilizers made by chemical and/or physical methods that contain one or several nutrient elements needed for the growth of crops.

The environment is different

1.Organic fertilizer uses biological excrement or remains as fertilizer. After the organic matter in organic fertilizer is decomposed by microorganisms, the remaining inorganic salt enters the soil and is absorbed by plants. Because organic fertilizer has good compatibility with the environment, Will not pollute the environment.

2.Chemical fertilizer is to bury high-purity inorganic salts in the soil. These salts are dissolved in the soil and absorbed by plants. Due to the large concentration of inorganic salts, it is easy to destroy the acid-base balance of the soil and harm the environment.

The 7 major differences between organic fertilizer and chemical fertilizer:

1.Organic fertilizers contain a large amount of organic matter and have obvious effects on improving soil and fertilizing; chemical fertilizers can only provide inorganic nutrients for crops, and long-term application will have adverse effects on the soil, making the soil more greedy.

2.Organic fertilizers contain a variety of nutrients, which are fully balanced; while chemical fertilizers contain a single type of nutrient, long-term application is likely to cause an imbalance of nutrients in the soil and food.

3.Organic fertilizers have low nutrient content and require a large amount of application; while chemical fertilizers have high nutrient content and require a small amount of application.

4.Organic fertilizers have a long effect time; chemical fertilizers have a short and violent effect, which can easily cause nutrient loss and pollute the environment.

5.Organic fertilizers come from nature, and there are no chemical synthetic substances in the fertilizers. Long-term application can improve the quality of agricultural products; chemical fertilizers are pure chemical synthetic substances, and improper application can reduce the quality of agricultural products.

6.In the production and processing process of organic fertilizer, as long as it is fully decomposed, the application can improve the drought resistance, disease resistance, and insect resistance of crops, and reduce the use of pesticides; long-term application of chemical fertilizers reduces the immunity of plants , Often need a lot of chemical pesticides to maintain the growth of crops, easy to cause the increase of harmful substances in food.

7.Organic fertilizers contain a large number of beneficial microorganisms, which can promote the biotransformation process in the soil, which is conducive to the continuous improvement of soil fertility; long-term large-scale application of chemical fertilizers can inhibit the activity of soil microorganisms, resulting in a decline in the automatic regulation ability of the soil.

The benefits of organic fertilizer with chemical fertilizer:

Chemical fertilizer has single nutrient content, high content, fast fertilizer effect, but short duration; organic fertilizer has complete nutrients and long fertilizer effect, which can improve soil and improve soil fertility. Mixed use of the two can choose the shortcomings and take the longest, fully supply the nutrients needed for crop growth, enhance the healthy growth of crops, and increase the benefit of increasing production.
