Cons of Using Yeast
Despite the seemingly obvious benefit of yeast for the nutrition of tomatoes, there are opponents of this method of feeding garden crops. From their point of view, as a result of watering the soil with yeast extracts, the activity of microorganisms is able to sharply intensify, and there is also an increased release of carbon dioxide, which is accompanied by almost lightning-fast mineralization of organic components, enhanced by the release of nitrogen, as well as phosphorus.
These observations make it possible to classify yeast dressing as a category of events accelerating the decomposition of organic matter, followed by a sharp depletion of the soil and turning it into rocky and difficult to develop soil.
