Now for most people, fertile soil — a utopia. Purely consumer approach to growing plants destroys topsoil. Most agronomists believe that the fertile soil — is a land of a certain chemical composition. This representation is fundamentally not true, and that it leads to the destruction of the soil. Do not believe me? Read on.
Everyone knows that the mold in the soil is relatively small, and is on the ground. If you dig a two-meter hole in the ground, you can see with the naked eye that the fertile soil on the bottom there, but if we assume that the fertility of the soil is determined by its chemical composition, on the contrary it is a depth to be more fertile, because Plants do not get here.
Also, we all know that for the normal development of plants the soil in which they grow should be loose. Here we Agronomy AGAIN NOT bred there and said, you need to do it regularly dig. Digging up the soil, we first make of her ground, then sand and finally the dust. And then it all breathe.
Another mistake — the way we plant plants. Different plants consume and produce different minerals. If the bed of mixed different plants grow, they work with each other and require little or no care for themselves. And if you fill the entire bed of plants of one species, they begin to fight among themselves for a place in the sun. As a result of a lack of micronutrients we get sick plants. We are trying to cure their chemistry, again on the advice of agronomists, and enter into a vicious circle.
So, we all go beat agronomists for what they give us false information? And of course you can go, but it will not solve the problem. More sensible action — by understanding what determines the fertility of the soil. It's worth it — if we can copy the behavior of Nature — because now she only makes the soil fertile, you will not have to toil in the garden — there will grow all by itself. Attractive? Moving on.
Fertile soil — a living organism, not just a set of chemical elements. The fact that it contains many trace elements — a side effect of its "zhivizny." In order to improve the fertility of the soil to improve its "zhiviznu", and in the living soil with trace elements come themselves. Do not believe it? No mystery here, but there is only precise laws of Nature.
First, the fertile soil — this is not the land. Earth — an integral part of it, but this is only the framework on which the mold is formed.
First, look at how to make the soil loose. It's just — you need to drop a few times in her annual plants with long roots. When their long roots wither remain passages, through which the soil is loose.
Now take a look at where to get the trace elements that are necessary to plants. Here, too, no problem — you just do not leave the beds naked under the scorching sun. Partially weed weeds and partly leave, and weed out the weeds stop here on the bed. Plus to plant mixed with each other, not individual beds.
That's all on the plants and weed out the weeds will share with each other micronutrients. Last problem — where to get water. You might be surprised, but the problem here either. Only need to impose our plants sprouting pyatnadtsatisantimetrovym layer of straw, leaves or needles.
This layer is called mulch. Most people who use the mulch, they think that it only retains moisture. In fact, she also produces moisture. Above and below the mulch temperature is different, due to the difference in the mulch dew drops, so necessary for the plants.
Dew drops, not only in the mulch, but also moves that left the roots of the old plants, ie annual plants with long roots have a dual benefit.
That's the whole machinery of soil fertility. As you can see, nothing fancy here. Fertile soil is so simple that this simplicity is very hard to believe, so we are still looking for the magic fertilizer that makes our soil fertile. But the truth is that this fertilizer is not and can not be.
