First things first. Healthy soil is the basic principle for a good yield. Fruits, vegetables and grains can only reach maximum potential when they get the right nutrients from healthy soil. So, a great way to start producing good yields is to take care of your soil. When your soil is in a good condition, plants stress less and diseases don't occur as often. There are many advantages to adding organic matter to sandy soil; this will help retain water, will help break up clay soil, will improve the air quality of soil and help soil not to compact.

In this category we do not provide too much detail on soil structure and all the different soil types. We focus rather on how to improve your soil quality by using composting and conservation agriculture (with both having pro's and con's compared to conventional agriculture). Over the long term however conservation agriculture provide more benefits.
