Organically derived - fertilizers stimulate beneficial soil microorganisms and improve the structure of the soil. ... Organically derived fertilizers typically have a lower NPK analysis (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) than synthetics fertilizers, but they feed plants for a much longer period of time.
Chemical Fertilizer - chemical fertilizers are not eco-friendly. For one thing, it’s made from petroleum products, which are not sustainable. In addition, chemical fertilizer can leaches into water sources. But the mine reason we use organic blends is because synthetic fertilizers do not improve soil structure!
