Benefits Of Fertilizers To The Soils

02 Jan

Aeration is mostly done using manual or mechanized equipment's and tools which removes cores in the soil or changes the packing of soil particles, this improves perforations through the soils which enhances better penetration of water, air and nutrients in the soil.

Fertilizers are natural or synthetic materials added to the soil, plants or part of the plant which improves the growth, fertilization and yielding of the plants, this is achieved by either the fertilizers providing nutrients or enhancing effectiveness of the soil to aerate or increase its water retention.

Maximum production of yield is achieved through supplying enough nutrients in the soil, improving aeration in the soil and water retention and is Auburn aeration can be done by adjustment of soil composition.

There are different types of fertilizers with different functions when applied; fertilizers provide various proportions in the soil like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium nutrients,nitrogen gives the leaf growth; phosphorus helps in fruit, flower and root development while potassium gives strong growth, enables water movement and promotes flowering.

Application of fertilizers is essential to all plants but differs due to some actors, they include the type of plants and soil too, Some plants like legumes do not need nitrogenous fertilizers as they can naturally fix their own from the atmosphere.

Aeration keeps circulation of oxygen and carbon dioxide steady making it better for the plants growth as accumulation of this carbon dioxide retards growth and if it exceeds, the crop may die.

The rate of microbial activity in the soil is determined by how well the soil is aerated as these microorganism require oxygen as they are still living things.

If there is poor aeration in the soil, waste gases may never get a way out of the soil and may end up bidding up with nutrients forming hazardous gases that may lead to abrupt drying of crops.

Fertilizers assist to increase yields and promote healthy growth of plants; plants which have been well cultivated and given the correct type of fertilizers end up giving higher yields. In fact some nutrients like phosphorus in fertilizers aids in the faster formation of seeds and root development.

Fertilizers from increase the ability of plants to hold water and thus becoming more resistant in cases of drought; those containing potassium nutrient are the best as they help in strengthening of stalk and straws of plants.

Fertilizers improve soils fertility and texture which boots crop growth and this is best done by natural ones like manure which eradicate soil problems as they are non-toxic

Fertilizers give farms a long-lasting ability to yield and produce well as one application might run for a longer period boosting yields even for more than one season. Manures are the best as they are natural.
