As much you use fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides, better will be your produce


Big No". Excessive fertilizer can raise salt levels in the soil to toxic levels, burning the roots and stunting growth of your plants and it usually wash away in our waterways. Excessive Pesticides can also have similar detrimental effects on plants by burning the leaves or raising toxicity levels in the soil. Also pesticides will kill both target insects and non-target insects like earthworm and ladybug etc. which helps in soil formation because they can't distinguish between them. Too much herbicide can leach into the soil and find its way into waterways or, in extreme cases, contaminate groundwater. While applying fertilizer, pesticides or herbicides, more is NOT better. For best results and minimal unwanted side effects, follow label instructions carefully and using the exact recommended dosage is the best practice.
