Explain how fertilisers are different from manure:-





It is natural substance

It is manmade

It is prepared naturally in fields (open pits by decomposition of normal waste)

It is prepared in factories

It is less rich in Nutrients

It is more rich in nutrients like urea, ammonium, sulphate, phosphate

It provides lots of humus in soil

It does not add humus in soil

It is absorbed slowly in water (It is not much soluble)

It is soluble and plants can absorb it faster

It improves the texture of the soil.

Excessive use of fertilizers make soil less fertile.
