    To all the clowns, this is inorganic fertiliser. Putting it simply organic fertiliser is made from poo and pee. Off course we can use leaves etc.

    They will do the Poo and Pee after applying this Indian Import, using the disposable and bio degradable screen provided by the Indian suppliers Free of Charge (FoC) to provide privacy. Sri Lankans' affinity for anything free!!. After getting the head ache, pay for the Aspirin to quell the Head ache!

    They banned inorganic fertilisers to introduce organic ones. This liquid nitrogen what the imported is inorganic. For your information what are organic ones, naturally occurring organic fertilisers include manure, slurry, worm castings, peat, seaweed and guano. Green manure crops are also grown to add nutrients to the soil. Naturally occurring minerals such as mine rock phosphate, sulfate of potash and limestone are also considered Organic Fertilisers
