Dairy animals Manure: An extraordinary generally useful compost that doesn't consume plants as effortlessly, because of a lower nitrogen content and more weed seeds.

Goat/Sheep Manure: A drier compost that is less rank and delicate to plants (won't consume as effectively). The little pellets make it simple to apply, as well.

Not exclusively can cover crops give supplements to the soil, they can likewise enhance both seepage and air circulation, cover undesirable weeds, advantageous to soil creatures. The negative side of cover crops is waiting time. 

5. Common Amendments followed in organic methods

For low nitrogen: include algae, blood meal, or vegetable cover crops

For low phosphorus: include rock phosphate or bone powder.

For low potassium: include wood ash and manure rich in potash (like banana, papaya peels)

For low calcium: include lime or shells powder.

For low magnesium: include epsom salts.

Those are very costly to collect and spread in fields.

Relative comparison of all methods.

               Compost can't suppress weeds
               Mulch, green manure suppress weeds

  • Nutrients:

               Compost gives immediate strength to soil
          Green manure will release slowly bcoz they decompose. Delivers Stable strength throughout crop
            Mulch needs additional liquid manures like cow urine and release nutrients very late

  • Microbes:

               Compost releases quickly and dries up quickly.
               Green manure until every matter decomposes completely into the soil.
               Mulch is stable and lost long in giving shelter to microbes.

  • Seasons :

             Mulch is good in dry seasons like summer
             Compost difficult to make in the rainy season.
             Green manure in any season. In summer it requires little water.

If we need quick result use compost. But costly process.
If you have time use green manure, effective
If u have patience use mulch.

All methods give same results and all are great.
