Method – 1: Cover Crops
Improves soil structure and soil fertilityReduces soil erosion and water rain water run offSuppress weedsProvides food and manureImproves soil moisture and reduces surface crustingReduces high fluctuations of soil temperatureSome cover crops can provide good cash incomeA good alternative source of mulch, especially where crop residue areimportant animal feedMethod – 2: Mulching
Increases soil moistureReduces evaporation from soil surfaceSuppresses weedsReduce high fluctuation in soil temperatureIncreases soil organic matterProtects soil from splash erosion and water run off

Method – 3: Earth Basin

Want more flowering for fruit trees? Learn the concept of Smudging !!

Is your tree is lazy to give fruits? Is your tree stubborn to bear fruits? You can make your tree listen to you., how? SMUDGING...

Weeds and Soil

A weed is considered as a nasty plant, yet we don't know how they survive and they grow profusely.

Most weeds develop in soils that are high in nitrates and are microorganisms commanded soils. By observing the kind of weeds that grow on your soil, will give you sense of what conditions are constraining. The genuine reason behind weed growth is to improve the biology of soil. Numerous weeds go about as authorities of inadequate soil minerals. The compelling force of nature doesn't care for uncovered soils, so she discovers something to develop (weeds) that improve soil so different plants can develop,thrive, adapt for correcting imbalanced nutrient in soil.
Each plant is a pointer of the conditions that exist in that field and demonstrates why some agronomic yields (corn, groundnut, Paddy, Beans) development may endure. Weeds provide us some insight into w…
