Organic fertilizers are beneficial for plants because they provide a natural source of nutrients, promote healthy soil, and can improve the overall health of the ecosystem. They are made from natural materials such as compost, bone meal, and blood meal, and release nutrients slowly over time, reducing the need for frequent application. Organic fertilizers also improve soil structure, promote beneficial microorganisms, and can help retain moisture in the soil. Additionally, organic fertilizers are considered safer for the environment and human health than synthetic fertilizers.
- Organic fertilizers provide a slow release of nutrients to plants, which helps to avoid over-fertilization and nutrient burn.
- Organic fertilizers are safe for use around pets and children, as they do not contain synthetic chemicals or toxins.
- Organic fertilizers are often more specific to the plants they are used on, providing the right amount of nutrients for that specific plant, unlike synthetic fertilizers.
