Organic Gardening Techniques
The success or failure of the organic approach depends on how gardeners use and prepare organic matter, according to this site. Organic matter improves soil tilth and prevents soil compaction and crusting, while it increases the water holding ability of the soil and provides a more favorable soil environment for earthworms and beneficial microorganisms. Organic matter also slows erosion, and in later stages of decay, organic matter releases nitrogen and other nutrients to growing crops. Carbon dioxide from decaying organic matter brings minerals of the soil into solution, making them available to growing plants. Many soils of the world have been ruined, mainly because they have been depleted of organic matter from prolonged cultivation without proper soil management, the site says.
