Three basic fertilizer types are organic fertilizer, slow release fertilizer, and soluble synthetic fertilizer. As a slow-acting fertilizer, organic fertilizer comes from plants and animal or human waste. Slow release fertilizer, known as WIN (water insoluble nitrogen), has a high nitrogen percentage and often does not require reapplication, while soluble synthetic fertilizer may require reapplication but proper application eliminates fertilizer burn.
