The healthiness of your soil is directly related to a fruitful crop yield, but how do you maintain and improve soil health? To get to back to your soil’s original nutrient balance would mean leaving the soil untouched for at least a few years, this is true, but there are steps you can take that will help you bring your soil close to this point. The main goals for soil health are:
- To retain nutrients in the soil while recycling the soil profile
- Mineralize minor trace elements
- Suppress diseases
- Lift water infiltration saturation levels
- Build organic matter and sequester carbon
How do you accomplish all these things? This is how you want your soil to act, but how can you get it to behave this way?
The biological farming approach is based on measuring the microbial life in the soil, with the goal in mind to create a more high functioning soil to facilitate this microbial life. Applying soil additives such as livestock manures, organic enzymes and building cover crops such as organic matter and humus, is the surest way to bring your soil back to life.
