It’s not a question of whether synthetic fertilizers sterilize the soil we depend on to grow healthy plants, it’s just a matter of time!
Think of the soil as your body for a minute. You can take medicines to get better when you’re sick or you can use a holistic approach and use natural foods and herbs.
The same principle applies here with the use of organics vs synthetic fertilizers. However, after a period of time your body and the soil are going to turn on the synthetic food or drugs. Organic fertilizers are just the opposite. Organic “LIVE” fertilizers restore the microbial life in your soil. That in turn allow plantings and turf to absorb the nutrients.
