 They  are  not  pure  enough.  Very  often  it  can  cause  reactions  with  other  ferts  or  it  might  contain  an  impurity  that  is  toxic  to  livestock.  Stick  to  Lab  grade  only

 I  use  agricultural  grade  fertilizers,  and  I  have  not  see  any  side  effect.  I  have  been  using  these  since  2008.  If  you  don't  mind  the  additional  cost  then  use  lab  grade.
 
 This  is  not  personal,  but  an  observation  that  many  simply  reiterate  something  they  have  heard  or  read,  but  with  no  real  basis...I  may  have  said  the  same  things  before  but  now  I  believe  different
 
 People  complain  about  Agricultural  grade  being  impure,  I  doubt  that  even  one  of  them  has  got  anything  tested  in  a  lab  to  ascertain  the  purity  and  the  contaminants.  Even  I  haven't  got  anything  tested.  For  me  agricultural  grade  works.  I  find  no  point  in  spending  more  money  for  Lab  grade  stuff.

 Have  seen  it  happening  a  few  times  especially  with  Pot  Phosphate  so  my  advice  is  from  experience

 It  all  depends  on  the  substrate  you  use.  If  you  are  using  natural  substrate  eg  garden  mud,  river  sand  then  agricultural  fertilisers  can  be  used.
 
 if  you  are  using  man  made  substrate  then  fertilisers  are  used  as  suplements.
 
 Now  lets  say  I  have  a  combination  of  garden  mud,  river  sand  and  river  gravel-  my  tank  is  a  30  gallon  tank.  I  have  plants  which  can  be  easily  grown  with  medium  light  then  I  will  have  excellent  growth  even  without  CO2.and  NILfertilisers.Growth  will  be  very  good  but  algae  will  take  over  if  fertilisers  are  added  from  top.
 
 Now  lets  switch  to  the  above  combination  with  RED  plants,  high  light,  difficult  range  and  if  these  plants  are  grown  emersed  by  the  seller,  the  plants  will  become  green,  leaves  will  have  saturated  growth,  stems  will  be  thin.  So,obviously  you  will  decide  to  add  fertilisers.  Here  in  this  scenario  it  would  be  better  to  anticipate  adding  agriculture  fertiliser  while  creating  the  substrate.  If  you  add  agriculture  fertilisers  in  an  established  tank,you  will  have  green  water,  algae,  and  unnecesary  mulm.
 
 In  man  made  substrate,  it  would  not  be  right  to  use  agriculture  fertilisers.  It  will  simply  react  with  the  substrate  and  deteriorate  it.  Here  you  can  use  lab  grade  fertilisers  in  low  concentration.But  again  if  plants  have  been  grown  in  emersed  state  it  will  differ  growth  rate.In  man  made  substrate,  red  plants  will  show  good  results  with  suplemented  fertiliser  dosing.  Mono  Potassium  phosphates  +  chelated  iron  +  good  pressurised  co2  will  give  lovely  results.
