Compare the use of manure and fertilizers in maintaining soil fertility.

Manure adds nutrients to the soil without affecting its fertility. Fertilizers are chemicals which lower the fertility of the soil if used regularly.

Advantages of manure

  • It increases the water-holding capacity of the soil.
  • It makes the soil porous and facilitates the exchange of gases.
  • The texture of the soil improves.
  • The number of microbes increases in the soil.

Advantages of fertilizers

  • They are quick in providing plant nutrients and restoring soil fertility.
  • They are portable and easy to transport.
  • Plants easily absorb fertilizers.
  • Fertilizers improve and increase the productivity of many crops such as wheat, maize, and rice.
