Importance of Organic Fertilization in Soil
Organic fertilisers have been found to improve root system health due to improved soil structure. Organic fertilisers enhance soil texture, water absorption, and erosion resistance by increasing the organic matter content of the soil. As a result, it aids in the enhancement of the physical and physiological structure of the soil. When organic matter, such as manure or compost, is added to the soil, the organic matter must first be mineralized, or broken down, by microorganisms, with the nutrients released as ions. This allows the roots of the plants to absorb them. They boost microbial activity while also improving soil structure.
