Organic fertilizers are manure, leaf and kitchen waste compost.. which are around 150-200 for 50kg...

It looks like ammonium phosphate. By the way, there is no difference in so called chemical or a organic fertilizer. It is all about the marketing gimmicks for the rich and the elite. Take urea for example, it is made synthetically but our bodies also make and excrete urea daily. So what is the difference?

Regardless, my humble opinion is to use good quality khaad (cow's manure).

The Organic urea in my dogs urine is so concentrated that it even burns the grass. :roll: Any possibility of marketing it :lol:

Let me relate my experience;
In 1964 about 20 miles short of Khunjrab I visited a camp of Chinese workers constructing the Qara Quram Hiway.
I was surprised to see their vegetable garden. their produce was better than I had ever seen.
They were using only Organic Fertiliser. They showed me the huge drums in which all the excreta (stools + urine) of the people living in the camp was collected and later utilised as fertiliser.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT; Free organic fertiliser produced at your own home. :lol:

There was a garden by the name of "gutter baghicha" in Karachi University- someone was re-inventing this wheel of research for the last 30 years, still I haven't heard of the outcome :-). I totally agree with you, I have seen such "gardens" fed by treated sewage water and such gardens are indeed lush green.
