Abstract
It is a well-known fact that continual cultivation of the soil eventually leads to a complete depletion of plant nutrients. In the past this depletion was counteracted by bringing virgin soils under cultivation or by applying the excreta of animals. The modern farmer uses chemical fertilizers, but experience has proved that the application of these inorganic fertilizers must go hand in hand with applications of. Organic material in some or other form. It is impossible and impracticable to return to the soil all the organic matter which it loses, but by regular applications of organic matter total deterioration can be prevented.
