Dear Student


Effects of using manures on soil quality:
(i) The manures enrich the soil with nutrients.
(ii) They provide a lot of organic matter (humus) to the soil and thus restores water retention capacity of sandy soils and drainage in clayey soil.

Effects of using fertilizers on soil quality:
(i) By the continuous use of fertilizers, the soil becomes powdery, dry and rate of soil erosion increases.

(ii) The nature of soil changes to acidic or basic.

Manure is difficult to store, transport and apply as compared to fertilizers. 
Manure helps in water retention where as fertilizers do not.
