In 1907, Theodore Roosevelt said, “the nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself.”
Manure and compost are used as an amendment to improve soil fertility and to add soil quality. It will provide essential nutrients such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, as well as enhance the microbial population necessary to release nutrients from the soil as well as the manure.
The addition of manure and compost can improve soil structure allowing for better aeration which in turn will increase the release of organic nutrients and improve root development. The water holding capacity or moisture retention will be improved.
“Essentially all life depends on soil, there can be no life without soil and no soil without life, they have evolved together” Charles Kellogg, 1938.
