Fertilisers are prepared in factories.they have all the three important plant nutrients nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium . they do not emit any bad smell.but they cause alot of pollution.ex ammonium sulphate .
Manure is a natural product. it is prepared naturally in the field .and it mostly doesnt have the three important plant nutrients . 
it emits a bad smell.ex sewage sludge

Usually it comes from farm animals such as cows, horses, goats, sheep, etc. The manure contains a lot of nitrogen, which is an essential Ingredient for plant growth.However lots if farmers use Anhydrous ammonia (NH3) to provide plants with the nitrogen they need.Although manure and ammonia can both be used to meet a plants nitrogen needs, ammonia isn`t manure, it`s fertilizer.There are also other fertilizers like potash, which contains another key ingredient for plant growth: potassium (potassium gets its name from potash)Manure refers to none of these things. Manure is animal poop.

manure are the naturally prepared organic material usally they are prepare by the degradation micro organisms in the cow dung in a pit. it helps the field to get rich nutrients and to get good yield.
 where as the fertilizers are the chemically made compounds which also used to get the good yield but for a longer use they degrate the fertility of the soil.
thank you
