For years farmers have been adding natural fertilizers to their crops. It is a big risk though. Over fertilizing is very dangerous. It puts high concentrations of salt into the soil. It can also affect the water resources nearby.
So too much of certain nutrient can have a large affect on the plant (Sims, Pastor, Lee, Dewey 2011). Today, agriculture and the food industry have a huge part in our society’s development, as it has become an essential part of our economy. The soil farmers use to grow their plants contain nutrients to help the plants grow. Since nitrogen is needed in large quantities by the plant, it is most frequently used as fertilizer. The need for nitrogen depends on the plant.
The liabilities of a farm are the expense of seed, cost of employees, and the cost incurred for plant care. A farm can be very expensive but it can also be very profitable. A liability of owning a crop farm is the expense of seed. Seed prices can vary depending on the crop that meets the farmer’s needs.
