Most of the synthetic fertilizers originated after the World Wars when the chem companies that produced bombs had a lot of left over product no longer needed. So in order to stay solvent they convinced the ag producers to use chemicals such as Ammonium nitrate, Calcium nitrate based fertilizers (among others). Very fast acting and great for short term crops but not good nutrient for plants in the long run and they don’t put anything back in the soil.
Synthetic fertilizers tend to kill off a lot of the good beneficial microbes and bacteria that keep our soil healthy and keep the plants stronger and healthy enough to resist diseases and insects. So then the pesticide use is lower.

Good results from the weight control food.
I hate those commercials. They are so very creepy.
Laissez les bons temps rouler y’all!
