When one research the definition of a fertiliser the most frequent answer is a substance which helps the plant to grow by supplying the necessary minerals. Yet, one has to make an important distinction between organic and inorganic fertilisers. Being natural, organic fertilisers harm the environment much less compared to inorganic ones. This is because; they are made up from natural sources such as manure and compost. On the other hand, inorganic fertilizers cause fertiliser burns, water pollution by the leaching of nitrates leading to health problems such as the blue baby syndrome and also increase the amount of pests.
