TROPICAL PLANTERS

WHY ORGANIC FERTILIZERS?

The agriculture environment has gone from bad to worse with degrading soil health, and drastic change in weather. Poor soil condition has been caused by excessive usage of chemical fertilizers without the replenishment of organic matter, this combination contributes to the diminishing population of soil microorganisms – leading to “dead soil”. 

A soil with depleted organic matter content will soon lose it’s water and nutrient holding capacity as Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) is reduced.

Over time, nutrient and water leaching rate will increase and not only will this lead to the need for higher fertilizer dosage, it will cause severe pollution to our water source.
