Is water enough to recharge an over farmed piece of land?

    Generally no, water alone will not “recharge” an overfarmed piece of land. Farming takes nutrients out of the soil. While some nutrients do return back to the soil, it is not enough to replenish the soil each season, unless the fields are on a rotation for different types of crops. The term “overfarmed” implies that, regardless of whether fields were on rotation or not, the land has become almost entirely unproductive. Though water does carry some nutrients, it would not be enough. Adding some organic matter, like dead plants and animals, would be help the soil regain some of its fertility.
