Abstract: The usage of organic and mineral fertilizers in agricultural production has been examined and their advantages have been proved. Modern agricultural production is impossible without fertilizing. An increase in gross yield happens thanks to appropriate following agricultural principles, especially, providing plants with optimal nourishment that is performed only through fertilizing. However, in recent years, there has been an evident tendency towards reduction of fertilizing, thus, there has been a decrease in soil fertility and in crop production capacity. At the same time, there has been a considerable increase in cost for buying and using mineral fertilizers at agricultural enterprises due to a major increase in their purchase prices. In the authors' opinion, organic and mineral fertilizers have ecological, agrochemical and economic advantages when compared to standard forms of fertilizers. Researches of leading scientists have found that their usage is effective, it contributes to higher productivity and improvement of soil properties, their usage doesn't pollute environment. The proposed solution to the problem is the usage of organic and mineral fertilizers in production at agricultural enterprises. The economic effectiveness of the use of this type of fertilizers has been calculated based on the vegetable production. A recommendation has been given to optimize the process of fertilizing at the enterprise. A comparative calculation of profitability and income level of the main open ground vegetables has been made. A conclusion has been drawn that transfer to using organic and mineral fertilizers in agricultural production is the main direction of forming a profitable production and rational use of funds at the enterprise
