      2. In farmlands they use long duration (release) chips of fertilizer. They are made to feed over a season. If they get washed away, they dissolve slowly in streams, rivers, ponds, lakes…..it takes hundreds to thousands of pound in one field. So if the fields get rain heavy enough to wash they away, it’s seldom two or three pieces.

It’s crazy comparison but you know the once a dat pills have many more side effects from slowing digestion of the pills. It’s the same thing will fertilizer,it’s effects are prolonged good and bad
