what can farmers do to their soil to make it more fertile



  1. 0 Votes

    The best way to begin to make the soil more fertile is by adding organic matter. Organic matter can be anything from food scraps (anything except meats) to compost. This will improve the nutrients in the soil and will also encourage worms and other microbes to stay in the soil. These small organisms can work wonders in the soil by adding nutrients and by giving the soil more airspace by loosening it. 

    Organic compost is much more desirable than man made fertilizers. Fertilizers are chemically harsher and small organisms and worms will tend to leave the area because the environment will instantly become salty which is an environment they do not like.
