List of organic fertilizers

Coffee as an ecological fertilizer

Coffee grounds are included in the list of organic organic fertilizers

The use of ecological fertilizers is one of the keys to organic farming. The ecological fertilizers They improve soil conditions, provide the necessary nutrients for healthy plant growth and development, and protect against erosion, as well as benefiting the environment and fauna.

From this blog we have provided you with some organic and homemade fertilizers and fertilizers (the banana tea, for example, rich in potassium), but some of you have asked me about commercial organic fertilizers. So here goes one list of organic fertilizers, I think it is quite complete, but if you see that one is missing, let me know and we will complete it together.

As they tell us in Eco store, "the green manures They can increase the assimilable phosphorus, as well as potassium and other elements, and all this makes microorganisms develop in a remarkable way. In turn, it encourages the decomposition of plant debris that will create humus and structure the soil. This will remain airy, light and easy to work (thanks also to the mechanical action of the roots) multiplying the number of worms several times. Lands in better condition are also benefited. The soil is not inert, it is precisely the living organisms that live in it that make its fertility possible, making dead matter the basis for new life. Everything that is, therefore, to promote the existence and dynamism of such organisms will lead to a healthier and more productive soil.

On the other hand, chemical fertilizers, are usually applied to obtain more abundant crops, but they are not as well absorbed by plants, which causes acidification of the earth, as well as the dragging of components that end up contaminating the groundwater and, with it, the sources and the rivers. Acidification creates imbalances in the soil and destroys the underground life so necessary for the fertility and good health of the earth and the plants that grow in it.

En info garden, they propose us this list of ecological organic fertilizers:

  • Green manures (they are crops made with the main function of burying them green in the soil as compost. Legumes are used to provide nitrogen, lupins for acidic soil, and in calcareous soil, vetch, sweet clover, peas, broad beans, clover and alfalfa).

  • Homemade compost.
  • Industrial compost (the one they sell in the 'gardens').
