    Various pesticide chemicals as well as livestock waste are two components of agricultural runoff that can pose hazards to ecosystems and their inhabitants.  Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium from fertilizers can wreak havok on ecosystems by causing massive plant growths and foul drinking water. Soils with toxic components attached can be themselves washed away into rivers and lakes, as well.

    Some of the most problematic chemicals  from synthetic fertilizers found in waterways are nitrates, nitrites, ammonia, ammonium and phosphates. These compounds aren’t exactly toxic, they are actually essential to life on earth, but when they are present in disproportionate concentrations they can cause rapid plant growth and death and destabilize nutrient cycles.
