Green fertilizers have become very popular in recent years, and they are gradually replacing chemical fertilizers. In addition, they are not toxic to animals and are not harmful to the environment, even if they are used in high dosage, because they are not toxic. They do no harm to plants because they are prepared to accept them and, by virtue of their properties, they provide them with the energy they need to develop. Since green fertilizers are not toxic to plants, they also do not destroy them, but help them produce strong roots and strong leaves. In addition, they have a natural antibacterial action and help with weed removal, which reduces the work of the gardener.
