Why Organic Manure is Better than Chemical Fertilizers

Published by Heena Qureshi on

Before chemical-based fertilisers became widely available, farming wasn’t nearly as easy as it is today. Our farmers were forced to contend with a lot of challenges. They would put in a lot of effort every day, but the ultimate product was not at all to anyone’s liking. The amount of labour that they put in was not repaid with increased crop production on the land. On the other hand, the introduction of chemical fertilisers completely altered their story of hardship.

We are not rejecting the fact that farmers started utilising chemical fertilisers to get increased agricultural output, and this is not something that we are denying. However, they were not capable of realising all of the possible risks that were involved with it. The use of chemical fertilisers does significant harm not only to the environment in which they are applied but also to the living things that are vital to our survival as a species.

One man realised all the negative impacts of utilising chemical fertilisers; he started looking for better alternatives for the environment. He was fortunate enough to have manure readily available surrounding his location.

To combat all of the risks associated with the usage of chemical fertilisers, farmers can turn to manures as the most effective and well-known substitute. The organic chemicals commonly found in manures do not harm the surrounding ecosystem or the species that call it home. Instead of using those artificial fertilisers, we should go back to using manures extensively, and Manures should be reintroduced into our society.

Cow dung, agricultural waste, dead leaves, and other materials are some of the best examples of organic-rich manures. As a result of their ability to supply the necessary nutrients that plants need, manures contribute to an increase in soil fertility. The use of manures helps to preserve the fertility of the soil while also increasing crop yields. Farmyard manure, compost, and green manure are examples of the many readily available and frequently employed types.

The combination of animal faeces, urine, feed, and dead leaves makes farmyard manure. The manure from the farmyard may be gathered daily from the livestock sheds.

Waste products from plants and animals, as well as food scraps and weeds, are the primary components of compost manure. Compost manures include vital nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus that are essential for the growth and development of plants while at the same time proving to be less detrimental to the environment. These nutrients are necessary for the growth and development of plants.

The list of available manures has recently been expanded to include green manure. Because it is good for the environment, it is a significantly better option for farmers to use. As part of green manure practises, green plants are buried beneath the soil’s surface. Because it contributes organic matter and nitrogen to the ground, soil fertility is increased as a result.
