In one of my videos I said there are a lot of reasons not to use commercial fertilizers.Who said not to?
Researchers say there is now firm evidence that organically-grown produce is healthier to eat than conventional crops.
Farms that use a lot of commercial fertilizer, and drink well water should have the water tested for nitrates.The excess nitrate is carried through the soil into groundwater supplies by irrigation water, rainwater, and snowmelt. This is most likely to occur when the soil is sandy, or gravelly and/or shallow water tables exist. Excess nitrate can accumulate in the soil from several sources, including fertilizer, manure, and sewage.
