People have started to invent fertilizers in the 19th century, and we have been using fertilizers since then to increase crop yield, enhance their quality and many other benefits. All along, chemical fertilizers have dominated the industry. Although they offer noticeable improvements in a short amount of time, chemical fertilizers can harm your soil and the environment in the long run.
In recent times, organic fertilizers are on an increased demand because of its long-term advantages over chemical fertilizers. Moreover, it causes less harm to the environment.
Types of Organic Fertilizers
Organic fertilizers come from animal manure, plant waste and powdered minerals. Most organic fertilizers contain insoluble nitrogen, which are slowly released into the soil and plant over a long period of time.
Bio fertilizers, on the other hand, contain living microorganisms which enhances the growth of plants through assimilation of nutrients.
Bio organic fertilizers are purified organic fertilizers that have been stripped off of their moisture. After processing, they come in the form of loose powder, which are also odourless because moisture is absent.
Bio Fertilizer Manufacturer & Supplier
Greenearth Group of Companies is a well-known bio fertilizer manufacturer and supplier that offers products and services for the wellness of agriculture. The use of bio organic fertilizers preserves the environment in many ways. Thus, many farmers and corporations are turning to bio organic fertilizers for a more environmental-friendly plantation for long-term agribusiness.
What are the benefits of bio organic fertilizers to the environment?
The absence of chemicals like hydrochloric acid will produce healthier plants with a high quality. Our Bio Richar fertilizer contains arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF) and fish amino acid that increase soil biodiversity while being able to enclose nutrients in the plants for an optimum crop production. This fertilizer is also enhanced with effective microbes, combined with important macro and micronutrients for healthy plants.
Unlike chemical fertilizers which supply nutrients at a fast rate for quicker results, our Richfield bio organic fertilizers slowly releases substances that will be transformed into nutrients by the plants themselves. Additionally, it contains Nano Hydrogel to assist the plants when there is low ground moisture.
Your plants are protected as well when the mycorrhiza fungi develop the roots while protecting them from rotting due to pathogenic fungi. Greenearth’s mycorrhiza fertilizer contains a group of fungi that works closely with plant roots under symbiosis. Fungi such as arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF) and vesicular arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM) transport nutrients from the soil to the roots through a network of filaments. The symbiotic relationship between the fungi and the roots allows rapid plant growth and root development. This way, the host plant is able to obtain macro nutrients effectively. Plants that are free from harmful fungi and chemicals (from chemical fertilizers) are bound to be healthier and safe for consumption.
Chemical fertilizers harm the soil because of the concentration of certain acids such as hydrochloric and sulfuric acid. Humus and decomposed material combine to form soil crumbs, which hold the rock particles together and allow proper drainage and air circulation. The minerals found in the crumbs are important in retaining soil fertility. However, the acids in chemical fertilizers will dissolve the soil crumbs, resulting in compacted soil with bad drainage and poor circulation of air. Chemical fertilizers also speed up the growth of microorganisms by providing chemical nitrogen to the plants. This process will use up organic matter in the soil, and the long-term effect is soil depletion.
Contrastingly, bio organic fertilizers have a slow and consistent release rate of nutrients. Plants will have sufficient time to break down the nutrients, preventing excessive fertilization of the plant and soil. Bio organic fertilizers maintain a healthy soil, which promotes water drainage and air circulation. The soil structure and fertility is maintained up to a few decades, hence the soil will still remain rich and useful. Additionally, these fertilizers will increase the soil’s capability to hold the nourishment.
Greenearth’s Bio Richar organic fertilizer contains humic acid, which is a primary constituent of soil (humus), coal and peat. Its refined soil microbial rejuvenation improves soil fertility, allowing the soil to remain fertile for many years to come. The Bio Richar ensures that there is a stable supply of nutrients to the living soil for the long run.
High contents of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are usually included in chemical fertilizers. Due to the quick supply rate of nutrients, the plants are unlikely to absorb them completely at once. The excess fertilizer breaks down into nitrates and phosphates, and they travel into the ground when mixed with water. These substances are water-soluble, and they can remain in the soil for a very long time. The results are blocked waterways due to the accumulated substances and also water pollution as they carry the toxins into lakes and rivers. Chemical fertilizers are one of the main reasons for algae and fungi growth in the water, which can cause the lack of oxygen in the water. Microorganisms may die, leading to an unbalanced ecosystem.
Greenearth is a biochar supplier in Malaysia who offers biotech services as well for your plants in order to enhance plant growth and increase crop yield. Biochar is a type of bio organic fertilizer made out of manure, crop residues, organic wastes and biomass. Aside from reducing soil acidity and improving soil fertility, biochar reduces water pollution as well. Biochar retains the soil nutrients, therefore there is sufficient nutrients to be absorbed by the plant whenever they need it. Char contained in soil also reduces run-off of phosphorus into lakes, rivers and groundwater, thus reducing water pollution.
