The human species is perhaps the most valuable “Keeper of Balance” in the Garden of Eden. At times, Mother Nature herself has temper tantrums with extreme hot and cold weather, floods, drought, and others. These extremes effectively throw the entire dynamic bio-sphere out of balance.
At 1st Choice Fertilizer, Inc., we believe that human intervention is the clearest pathway to restoring equilibrium. Therefore, it is our goal to combine our scientific analysis with your practical knowledge and empower you as the “Keeper of Balance,” restoring Mother Nature to equilibrium, and optimizing whatever you choose to grow.
Having good soil is very important in ensuring the quality of your plants. Without good soil, it could be very difficult to yield strong plants. Proper pH levels of the soil actually help your plants grow, and various elements in the soil will determine whether your soil is good or not.
Air, water, and organic matter are necessary to have a compost pile. These elements are crucial in determining if the composting process will be successful or not. Aside from environmental benefits, composting also improves soil quality which later translates to having healthy abundant plants.
Proper nourishment in the soil at a microbial level gives your plants a higher resistance to different types of pests and diseases. This will help you reduce the need for fungicides and herbicides while continually improving the quality of your soil and resulting in higher yields.
In order to yield healthy crops, the quality of the soil must be suitable for plant growth. Essential nutrients must be present to allow plants to grow abundantly. Unfortunately, some nutrients are missing or in short supply in some soil types. That’s why farmers or gardeners turn to fertilizers.
Water supply is significant in plant growth and food production. The ability of water to infiltrate the soil, water pressure, and irrigation size must all be considered for optimal results. The continual presence of water also helps preserve the soil structure and nutrients as well as prevent disease and reduce the growth of weeds.
Chemical fertilizers are known to have great effects on plant growth. But, they do not help in preserving the soil’s natural nutrients and structure which could help future vegetation. Since they are composed of artificially produced chemicals, these contain toxic ingredients which can pose a threat to your health.
This type of fertilizer promotes organic farming by introducing beneficial microbes and nutrients to the soil. Microbes help break down nutrients into a usable and easily absorbable form for plants. This results in proper nourishment, encouraging faster growth as well as reduces water consumption and weed growth.
The soil used in growing plants indoors requires a boost in terms of nutrients. Since the supply of natural nutrients for plants is limited in this situation, fertilizers can help. Make your houseplant or indoor farm thrive. Use fertilizers which address the needs of your plants and soil.
Maintaining a flower garden or landscape entails various types of plants. Every plant has different nutrient requirements and unique response to fertilizers. For optimal and greener results, opt to plan ahead and choose the right type of fertilizer for your soil and greens.
