Is this a chemistry question? Carbon is the basic element in the
molecules of living things. As we know it, without carbon there would
not be life, not even bacteria or viruses. DNA molecule strains
require carbon as the basic building block. Many "inorganic
fertilizers" are salts (such as potassium nitrate) that do not contain
carbon atoms. The carbon atom is very unique, both physically and the
way it reacts with itself and chemically with other atoms. Diamonds,
graphite, charcoal are all carbon atoms, just arranged differently.
Use Google to find lots of information. Of course nothing here has
much to do with "organic gardening."
It's actually a fertilizer question. We were discussing organic
fertilizers in class which have carbon and inorganic fertilizers which
don't have carbon. Yeah, i guess it's a chemistry question, but i felt
since it was about fertilizers someone who has taken a soils and
fertilizer class would probably know the importance of carbon. I think
you answered my question. Thanks.
