Nutrients Lie Underground

When you’re not actively growing crops, the harsh sun beats down on the ground, causing the bare soil’s health to reduce greatly. In many instances, this is why weeds start growing. The weeds, which can put down deep roots, pull underground nutrients into the plant and bring those nutrients back to the top of the ground.

When soil is compacted, it needs to be loosened appropriately in order to bring buried nutrients up as well as to create more friable soil for your crops to be planted in. No matter what you’re growing, your crops need water, air, and nutrients. Loosening your topsoil means creating an environment in which your crops can grow much more easily.
