Conservative estimates report 30 to 50% of the crop yields are attributed to natural or synthetic commercial fertilizer. Here in our investigatory project, we used cemetery soil as an organic fertilizer for plants.
Fertilizers are any organic or inorganic material of natural or synthetic origin that is added to a soil to supply one or more plant. In this investigatory project, we will be using a cemetery soil as an alternative fertilizer. A cemetery soil is found in the cemetery where the dead person is buried in it. And as time pass by, the person’s dead body will become corpse and later on will e mixed with the soil. As we all know our body contains a large compound of nutrients. These nutrients are very important to plants in order to manifest their needs in processing photosynthesis, and to grow healthier.
Statement of the problem:
This study ought to answer the following questions:
1. Does a cemetery soil is effective as an alternative fertilizer for plants?
2. Which is more effective plant fertilizer, the organic or inorganic?
Significance of the study:
The finding of this study will benefit the following:
The result of this study can help the farmers to use cheaper and affordable fertilizers that help the plants to grow faster and healthier without using chemicals.
Students are also one of the beneficiaries of this study because it can help them to be aware and to widen their knowledge like knowing that cemetery soil can be an alternative fertilizer.
Scope and Delimitation:
This study seeks to find out, and proves that cemetery soil can be use as an alternative fertilizer.
Definition of terms:
*a dead body, usually of a human being.
*.something no longer useful or viable: rusting corpses of old cars.
*.Obsolete . a human or animal body, whether alive or dead.
Fertilizer (or fertiliser) is any organic or inorganic material of natural or synthetic origin (other than liming materials) that is added to a soil to supply one or more plant nutrients essential to the growth of plants.
Organic fertilizers are naturally occurring fertilizers (e.g. compost, manure).
Naturally occurring organic fertilizers include manure, slurry, worm castings, peat, seaweed, humic acid, and guano.
Inorganic fertilizer- A chemical (synthetic)fertilizer that releases nitrogen quickly into the soil(compared to an inorganic fertilizer such as manure which releases nitrogen more slowly as it decomposes.)
