For heavily eroded soil it is recommended to grown grass for many years to let the soils naturally repair themselves. No till farming – This is the method of growing crops year round without changing the topography of the soil by tilling or contouring.
Thousands of students have participated in the Jim Claypool Art and Conservation Writing contests since their introduction in 19, respectively.
The contests educate students on soil, water, forestry and wildlife conservation.
When these worms excrete egesta, this sits in the soils and gives the crops many nutrients which are absorbed via the roots of the plants.
Earthworm casts contain a vast amount more nutrients than any natural soil in the world, and for that reason should be invited into the soils of farmland to help prevent erosion and will lead to larger crop yields. Mineralization – To help crops reach higher yields or full potential, sometimes crushed rock or chemical supplements are added to the farmland, this helps combat mineral depletion.
