OriginEdit

Justus von Liebig (1803 – 1873) was a German chemist who made major contributions to agricultural and biological chemistry and was considered the founder of organic chemistry. Liebig has been described as the “father of the fertilizer industry” for his emphasis on nitrogen and certain minerals as essential plant nutrients, and his formulation of the Law of Minimum which described the effect of individual nutrients on crops.

One of his most recognized accomplishments is the development of nitrogen-based fertilizer. In the first two editions of his book, Liebig reported that there was not sufficient nitrogen in the atmosphere, arguing that nitrogen-based fertilizer was needed to grow the healthiest possible crops. He also believed that nitrogen could be supplied in the form of ammonia, recognizing the possibility of substituting chemical fertilizers for natural ones such as animal dung.

EffectsEdit

Placing any organic item into the sack and closing it turns the item into top grade fertilizer. Non-reversible. If something organic like a fish is placed inside, it will turn into the same amount of fertilizer. As of right now there is no way to reverse the effect, as neutralizing the sack does nothing.
