    35. 36. Chemical fertilizer Chemical fertilizer With chemical fertilizers, plants get enough element from chemical fertilizers ; instead of natural products Therefore the number of insects and microbes decrease due to loss of conducive conditions in soils . The plant cannot grow; especially the root zone because the soil becomes a non living entity after the decrease of microbes. Therefore we must keep applying chemical fertilizer to overcome this situation and maintain crop growth
    36. 37. Chemical Decrease Root can’t grow sufficiently Become weak plants Harmful insects Sick Hard soil Pesticides
