Increasing Environmental Concerns Have Become an Important Factor Contributing to the Growth of the Organic Fertilizer Market

Amsterdam, NL - July 20, 2020 -

Organic fertilizers are derivatives of mineral ores, animal, and plant residues. They also constitute of beneficial microorganisms. Organic fertilizers or microbial inoculants consist of fungi and live microorganisms that help with plant growth. These fertilizers help the plant by fixing atmospheric nitrogen, solubilizing phosphorus, and stimulating plant growth through the synthesis of growth-promoting substances. Organic fertilizers also foster the growth of earthworms that can be very beneficial for the soil. Moreover, crops produced through the use of organic fertilizers have several health benefits that come with them.

The rising trend for making use of sustainable farming methods has been a key-drivers for this market. The growing market for green technology and the harmful effects of synthetic fertilizers on the soil have been other factors that impact the growth of this market positively. Moreover, the raw material used for producing organic fertilizers is available in nature, therefore, the manufacturing cost for this market is lesser as compared to synthetic fertilizers.
