Due to the rising health consciousness, there has been substantial increase in the global organic food and drink market sales.

Organic Fertilizers Market Outlook

Environmental benefits associated with organic fertilizers, increasing land area under organic cultivation, technological advancement in organic fertilizers manufacturing process are some of the major factors leading to the development of organic fertilizers market. 

Additionally, organic farming reduces greenhouse gas emissions leading to the climate change by maintaining healthy soil that naturally retains photosynthesized carbon dioxide instead of releasing it back into the atmosphere. Moreover, it helps in preventing toxic leakers in groundwater. Up to 40% of the synthetic fertilizers used on conventional farms end up in ground and surface waters, eventually polluting rivers, lakes and oceans. Organic fertilizer has the ability to increase organic content in the soil, enhancing its capacity to retain water and circulate pollutants.
