Deciding how you want to treat your soil is a very important step! Soil management practices can either protect your soil from erosion, enhance its performance, health and organic matter (humus), preserve forests and biodiversity, such as bees, or make it vulnerable to erosion, decrease its fertility, and lose humus, biodiversity, and forests. Furthermore, your soil can significantly contribute to climate protection and mitigation through removing and sequestering atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and storing it as organic carbon.
Breathe new life into humus-poor or depleted soil! Compost helps your soil to come back on track and achieve conditions in which the humus biology can recover, strengthen and establish itself. Above all, what are you going to do with your kitchen, garden and farm’s organic wastes? You can use them in the best possible way to make your soil better.
Biochar offers a large number of soil health benefits. Through its porous structure, biochar provides many microorganisms in your soil with a permanent and safe home to reproduce themselves. There are a lot of micro- and mesopores in the coal pieces that can be inhabited by bacteria and fungi. Biochar helps your soil to regenerate itself, to increase its fertility, and to build up humus.
