Compost, manure and time release fertilizers tend to be more effective than fertilizers with pesticides.

Specifically, compost and manure are organic fertilizers that add to soil fertility, encourage well structured soil particles and promote air and water pore spaces. Manure nevertheless has to be monitored since it is so nitrogen rich. Monitoring also may be a concern with time release liquid fertilizers, which get the job done well but take time. It also must be a concern with fertilizers with pesticides since the suppression of one pesty problem may bring on another.
