Along with irrigation, chemical and natural fertilizers play an important role in producing high yields, providing nutrients for plants, thus increasing or maintaining optimal yields. Regarding the use of chemical and natural fertilizers in general, a downward trend has been observed between 1990 and 2000, so that the application of these fertilizers in this interval has decreased by more than 800%, a period considered not very happy in the case of the Romanian agriculture. The largest producers of chemical fertilizers used by Romanian farmers come from the European Union, so that they have discovered the opportunity of the Romanian agriculture market, they have opened their representative offices in Romania, where they provide farmers with consultants meant to offer them solutions dedicated to their needs. In Romania, an overwhelming natural fertilizer is used (over 90% of the total amount of fertilizer applied) because they are at hand and cheaper. These fertilizers may come from secondary livestock farming.
