How to improve poor soil?

alt-icon

Soil is the key to good growing. Good soils have high organic matter and good structure which allows healthy root development, and retains nutrients and moisture for an ongoing supply to roots. Most soils lose their fertility due to excessive use of chemicals and indiscriminate farming or gardening. To revive your soil, do the following.

For every 50 sq ft (5’x10’) apply 250 g each of Humik and All Purpose 4-3-9. Mix in the top 2” of soil after land preparation and then water lightly but more often.

If the soil is sandy or clayey and doesn’t grow good vegetables and other plants, also add 25 ml per litre of BioFish twice in one week before planting or seeding.

Benefits
• If the soil is sandy, it will start to form soft aggregates to hold moisture and nutrients.
• If the soil is too hard or clayey, it will crumble the soil and make it porous for faster root development to encourage deeper roots.
• Soils will get more microbial activity and encourage earthworms and other beneficial bugs and microbes that will colonize your soil.
