Put compost into your soil to add nutrients to your soil. You can either buy compost at a gardening store or make your own from kitchen scraps.
You can leave a plot of soil alone for a few years and allow the nutrients naturally in the soil to rebuild on their own. You can also use artificial fertilizers or organic matter such as compost to restore nutrients.
There are plenty of other alternatives as well, such as:
You can plant a nitrogen fixing cover crop (any of the legumes, like peas or beans), which will add N to the soil from the atmosphere.
And you don’t have to buy compost, you can use the lasagna gardening method (http://www.motherearthnews.com/Organic-Gardening/1999-04-01/Lasagna-Gardening.aspx)
