    The Mineral Route: Understanding Mineral Fertilizers

    Introduction: Mineral fertilizers, though derived from natural mineral deposits, require an industrial process facilitated by the petrochemical industry to become available for plant uptake.


    1. Not Fully Organic: Unlike organic fertilizers, mineral fertilizers don’t contribute to soil organic matter.

    3. Lesser Microbial Activity: They don't foster microbial life, which is essential for a healthy soil ecosystem.
