Considering oil is not used to manufacture common fertilizers, I think you should be more concerned with natural gas depletion. http://peakoildebunked.blogspot.com/2005/08/28-isnt-fertilizer-made-from-crude-oil.html Above link was the first thing I could find. Now if natural gas were to become unavailable, we would be forced to rely on coal sources of fertilizer as China is doing. When that becomes scarce, we are back to organics fertilizers made from human and animal waste.
