The components of organic fertilizer to the plants are potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen. These components can be found in seed meal, bone meal, and kelp meal. Organic fertilizer provides beneficial organic matter that can improve the soils, water, and nutrient holding capacity also it creates an environment that encourage beneficial soil organisms such as earthworms. This can take longer to breakdown and release nutrients reducing the loss of nutrients

1 to leaching. The use of organic is positive from the perspective of a recycling economy, a critical component of soil fertility and productivity. The components of commercial fertilizers contain a chemical mixture known nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Nitrogen increases the size of the plant and help it grows faster. Phosphorus helps roots and stems. Potassium increases plants overall health. Fertilizers can be purchased in quick release or slow release varieties. The advantage of quick release fertilizers is that they are readily available and you can see growth results very quickly. Commercial fertilizers can have a positive effect on the plant’s health by helping to withstand plant diseases and insect infection, producing a healthier plant. The chemical compounds in commercial fertilizers enhance the soil by providing nutrients that are lacking. Making an investigatory project about which fertilizer is best for growing plants and making
