Some of the users of fertilizer, including the household consumers and agricultural producers, asked this question on what if changing from chemical to bio-organic fertilizer, will the switch destroy or affect the growths of the crops? Bio Organic fertilizer is typically gradual release whereas the chemical fertilizer is powerful and with immediate effect. Actually from some research, the bio natural fertilizer is very much better off and safer for the plants than the chemical fertilizers.
Will the powerful and instant features of chemical fertilizer healthy to the human or plants? If the plants are not servable by people or livestock, such as flowers and non-fruiting tree, the chemical fertilizer utilization on crops should be fine. However, if the crops are consumable, whatever chemical elements that absorbed by the plants, will finally pass into the body of beings. Does anyone of you prefer to eat chemical fertilizer indirectly daily?
Frankly speaking, the chemical fertilizers do not have significant effects on plants because the crops themselves do not have brain to choose, that is, whatever we pour onto the plants, they will take it wholly. However the chemical fertilizers will have great effects on the soil and environment in long-term. Note below to understand further.Both the chemical and bio-fertilizers should not kill crops except in situation that the farmers and users overdose the fertilizers on crops. The crops are like our human body, if we overdose ourselves with too much supplements and vitamins, which beyond our body requirements, can result us falling sick or with critical diseases.
But if we rephrase the question: Switching From Organic To Chemical Fertilizer: Can Kill Plants? The answer is negative, but the crops will get faded or limited growth after a period of time for continuation of chemical fertilizers application. Why? The application of chemical fertilizers will slowly spoil the good elements of soil.
What are the consequences of deterioration of the soil quality? After a period of time of chemical application, the soil particles will become compact and unable to hold nutrients and moisture (basically the water retention). Sooner and later, the soil will become harder and harder and the absorption of water by the root radical of plants will be extremely limited.
Water is the important substance of any plant. Therefore, with limited absorption of water by the root radical of crops will inevitably fade or restrict the growths of the crops.
However for the bio-organic fertilizers, not all the organic fertilizers have great effects on plants and soil. I find a lot of farmers and users ever experienced some non-effective organic fertilizer and this inevitably gave them a remark that the bio organic fertilizer has no difference with the chemical fertilizer. This is not correct! We could only say that the selection of a suitable bio-organic fertilizer by the users is extremely important.A great bio organic fertilizer should enhance the soil quality and will not result hardness of the soil. This eventually will enhance the absorption of water by the root radicals of plants. A wonderful organic fertilizer supposedly should be a factor to enhancement of crop nutrition, betterment of soil fertility resulting in higher yield results as well as stronger resistance to diseases. Furthermore, a great bio organic fertilizer should effectively improve the returns of farm producers whilst the production and soil maintenance expenses should corresponding drop.
As a conclusion, rich nutrients in organic fertilizers should nourish the soil, tackle soil erosion and compaction, and give uninterrupted and healthy plant growths.
Note that after treatments with such right bio fertilizers, the soil with lots of organic matter (OM) will remain loose, enable root radicals to penetrate the soil comfortably to absorb nutrition and provide a steady stream of nutrients to the stems and leaves.
