Improving your Soil Biology: Maximize Your Farm’s Potential – Purple Cow Organics

Growing crops is hard work – and it’s the plants doing the most strenuous of tasks. To keep going and produce the best harvest, they need the right sources of energy, just like when training for a sport.  Plants get a lot of their nutrients from the soil, which means that it’s important that they are returned again for the next growing cycle.

Constant crop planting can wear on the land as these nutrients are taken up by crops, which is why any organic farm knows how important it is to improve soil biology. Without good soil biology management, your crops simply won’t grow the way you expect them to year on year.

 

Improving Soil Biology

There are a number of ways to get nutrients back into the soil. Many farmers use cover crops and crop rotation. However, there are other ways that farmers can add additional nutrients to their soil:

 

Fertilizers

In order to enrich the ground for crops, it needs to be adequately fertilized. This will restore the nutrients that the plants need and can be tailored for each individual crop. Unlike chemical fertilizer, organic fertilizer continually builds into the health of the land and doesn’t always need to be applied every year. What’s more, organic fertilizer contains more carbon, which raises soil stability and encourages soil biota. Chicken pellet manure is one of the best available organic fertilizers for row crops, which is why we’re proud to provide it to many happy customers every year.

 

Microbial Products

When it comes to soil biology, it’s things that you can’t see that are doing all of the work. Soil microbes like bacteria and fungi aid with the transfer of nutrients in the soil that crops can then take up. Not only this, they can also help to control pests. Adding the right type of organic culture to your soil ensures that you are giving your crops everything they need.
