Fertilizers in Organic Farming

Before I go on about the use of fertilizers in organic farming, you must first understand what organic farming is. The simplest way to describe organic agriculture is agricultural production without the use of synthetic chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, etc). For crop production, organic materials such as compost and manure are used to maintain soil organic matter and as sources of nutrients. Nitrogen-fixing as well as pest resistant plant varieties are utilized. The incorporation...
