Disadvantiages of Chemical Fetilizers

Posted February 27, 2015

  • Synthetic fertilizer do not improve soil structure and leach nutrients through the soil before plants can absorb them.
  • Unused nitrogen from synthetic fertilizers can seep into groundwater, contaminating valuable sources of drinking water.
  • Synthetic fertilizers promote the use of chemical pesticides and fungicides, further poisoning the land.
  • Synthetic fertilizers promote accelerated growth disrupting the natural NPK cycle and leave plants vulnerable to disease and insect pests.
  • Synthetic fertilizers are composed of gases that can inhibit seed germination and burn tender seedlings. 
  • The salt content in synthetic fertilizers are toxic to beneficial soil micro-organisms.
  • The leaching effect caused from overuse of synthetic fertilizers dissolves the natural soil structure and eventually causes the soil to become compacted and literally lifeless.
