Healthy Soil with More Compost

Healthy Soil with More Compost
Improve the structure of your soil as well as the absorption of nutrients by plants by adding more compost. Farmers who experience decrease in yield, in spite of applying more fertilizer will see drastic increases after using more organic material mixed into the soil. This highlights the fact that the soil must not just be regarded as an inert growing medium, but alive with organisms that benefits the growth of your plants.
Has the thought crossed your mind that all this organic stuff is pie in the sky and not applicable to commercial farmers? Take a look at the biggest tomato producer in South Africa, ZZ2, and their system called Natuurboerdery. Their motto is very interesting and highlights their mindset for true sustainability: “FoodHealth is our promise, healthy soil our passion”.
