The Importance and side effect of fertilizer application to crops on the farm

Fertilizers are chemical substances prepared using inorganic compound added to the soil for crops to increase their productivity. These are used by the farmers daily to increase the nutrient capacity of the soil to aid crop production

So fertilizer application involves the application of certain chemicals or substances into the soil to improve its fertility.

Even if the application of fertilizer helps to increase the soil fertility there are also side effect while using fertilizer to boost the fertility of the soil. 

So some of the effect of fertilizer application are listed below

1. The application of fertilizer on the farm affect the soil organic matter or humus

2. Another effect of fertilizer application is that it increases the porosity of the soil nearby increasing leaching

3. The application of fertilizer on the soil  Farmland deteriorates the structure of the soil.

4. The application of fertilizer supplements soil nutrient which is essential for crops growth

5. Although the productive capacity of the soil is enhanced by the application of fertilizer but care should be taken to avoid excessive use of fertilizers thereby destroying the humus capacity of the same soil sample

6. Fertilizer application can rapidly increase the population of microorganisms in the soil

7. Another effect of fertilizer application is that it is stimulate vegetative growth hence it reduces soil erosion

8. We can't just jump off from this very word that excessive application of fertilizer can cause soil acidity which is not good for crop production

9. Wrong application method of fertilizer can affect the life of plant crops and animals

what are the effect of overgrazing on agricultural production?

What is overgrazing?
A very simple definition of overgrazing that overgrazing is a situation where more animal that can be supported on a particular pasture ground are put there to graze on it

Most times overgrazing occurs when there is an exceeding carrying capacity of the soil. 

We can define overgrazing as a situation where the amount of grasses or weed found in an environment cannot support the total number of animals feeding on it.

In a situation where there is an overgrazing within a given square kilometre of land, what is the effect economically agriculturally on production?

The effects of overgrazing are listed below
1. Overgrazing removes the vegetative cover of The Sun resulting in high exposure of the soil to direct sunlight

2. Another effect of overgrazing is that it exposes the soil to direct gully erosion and sheet erosion

3. Overgrazing causes poor growth of crops plants and then regenerative capacity of crops are also reduced

4. Another important effect of overgrazing is at during grazing hours faeces are dropped within the land which could improve the fertility of the soil

5. One of the effect of overgrazing on a particular piece of land is that weed can easily be eradicated from such lands through grazing

6. Overgrazing destroys soil structure

7. Overgrazing exposes the topmost soil to soil erosion including wind erosion

8. Take note that overgrazing lead to component of the soil resulting from continuous sampling by animals hoofs

9. Overgrazing to be precise exposes the soil to hit which can easily draw the top most soil making the sprouting of crops difficult
