    Find the right balance of organic matter, tillage, and chemical additives to increase the quality and quantity of crops! This book shows the importance of organic matter in maintaining crop production. The addition of organic matter to soil is covered . The topics covered include (a) soil description (b) soil classification (c) azonal and intrazonal soils formed from volcanic and sedimentary rocks (d) zonal soils formed from sedimentary and igneous rocks (e) soils and land use (f) soil resources of New by: Night-soil, it is well known, is a very powerful manure, and very liable to decompose. It differs in composition; but always abounds in substances composed of . To make best use of nutrients and manures on the farm and reduce emissions. Better targeting of fertilisers can cut waste and improve profits. For the majority, it will not be practical or economic to replace all fertilisers with manures, slurries, compost and digestates, but the aim should be to make maximum use of the manures and slurries that are available on the farm.

A fertilizer (American English) or fertiliser (British English; see spelling differences) is any material of natural or synthetic origin (other than liming materials) that is applied to soil or to plant tissues to supply one or more plant nutrients essential to the growth of sources of fertilizer exist, both natural and industrially produced.

The soil and leaf litter make up a unique habitat that supports a rich and diverse life. The soil is a matrix of myriad solid mineral particles, decomposing organic matter, and pores filled by water and air.

The soil atmosphere is always very humid. Temperature and moisture extremes are attenuated in the soil. Bagged Manures When mulch and soil conditioners are applied to the soil, fungi and soil bacteria begin breaking down the organic matter into individual components, releasing nutrients in the process.

Moisture and air temperature regulate this release as well as controlling the plant growth, so the two go hand in hand. Scientists estimate the loss of soil in New Zealand, through erosion and transport by rivers to the sea at million ton per year.

It arises mainly from the 22 million hectare of cultivated land, averaging 18 t/ha or 10 - 20 times the rate of natural soil formation.
