Why is soil life vital?

The solid natural soil in the normal world assists a web of life including microscopic organisms, moulds, yeast, protozoa, nematodes and additionally bigger organisms like worms and slugs. These life forms play a key part in the life of plants. They decompose organic matter to make the supplements accessible for plant roots. They condition the dirt and make air spaces and passages in it – enhancing air circulation and waste. Furthermore, they rival other more unhealthy living beings in the dirt, that will harm your plants if left unchecked. 

There are a few distinctive ways you can include life to soil 
Vermi Compost: Worm compost is particularly rich in soil life. It’s my number one choice for adding life to Soil. When matter is passed through the worm's body it becomes inoculated with all sorts of tiny life forms. So worm compost contains bacteria, fungi and other microscopic goodies (as well as worms!).Need to prepare our own compost(long process), buying outside will prone to unwanted seeds. There effectiveness and quality depend on making process. 

Farm Yard Manure or Chicken Manure: Manure is also rich in microbial life. In urban places you can often find it – free or at low cost. But, the effect of manure depends on the measure of decomposition.Fresh manure will not be effective, it takes time to decompose in the soil.Manure varies tremendously in quality and the goodies – and nasties like drug residues. Now people are giving so many medicines to rearing mammals or birds. Bio-slurry which is prepared on decomposing manure gives quick and authenticate results.

Green Manure: Very effective, give quick results.After mixing into the soil with 15-30 days it decomposes and gives life to microorganisms + nutrients to plant. Simple process but need to wait 40-60 days before the main crop.

Ghana Jeevamrut: This is prepared by mixing Cow Dung, Cow Urine, Jaggery and pulses powder. It is a very effective technique to enrich soil but it depends on the quality of Cow Manure and making process.

Bio Agents: Very effective but those need to mix with one of the above, their quality depends on making process. Should buy at an authenticated store.
We can't figure out which is best. Its depend on their availability. In my view green manure is cheap & anyone can implement easily without any difficulties against to transportation or specific making process.
