What are the benefits of animal manures to plants


  • Animal manure provides several benefits to plants, including:

    1. Nutrient source: Animal manure is a rich source of nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are essential for plant growth.

    2. Soil improvement: Manure helps to improve soil structure and fertility by increasing soil organic matter content, improving soil water-holding capacity, and enhancing soil microbial activity.

    3. Disease suppression: Some animal manures contain microorganisms that can suppress soil-borne plant diseases, reducing the need for chemical fungicides.

    4. Sustainable farming: Using animal manure as a fertilizer promotes sustainable farming practices by recycling organic waste products and reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers.

    5.Cost-effective: Animal manure is often cheaper than synthetic fertilizers, making it a cost-effective option for small-scale farmers.
