The use of fertilizers dates back 8,000 years, when early farmers used manure to fertilize their crops. However, modern, commercial agriculture has now become heavily dependent on toxic synthetic fertilizers.

These man-made chemicals allow farmers to temporarily increase the yield of their crops, but they also destroy beneficial soil microorganisms, cause air and water pollution and increase the long-term cost of agricultural production.

For these reasons, organic fertilizers have become increasingly popular among farmers and gardeners in recent years. Whether they’re meals, manures or composted plant material and kitchen scraps, organic fertilizers contain key minerals, particularly nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, vitamins and organic matter.
