Do you know, fertilizers trigger disproportionate release of large amounts of carbon dioxide, contribution towards global warming?! The rainforest soil is widely polluted with phosphorus and nitrogen that come from agriculture.

Tropical forests contain 40 per cent of terrestrial carbon of the world. And, hence the impact on global warming is disastrous.
