Abstract
It is a generally recognized fact that the soils of the Haut-Katanga are poor in humus. This is due largely to the annual bush fires. The fire destroys the organic matter-microorganisms which are indispensable to plant life-and it makes the soil sterile. The addition of ashes does not Insensate for the loss in humus-bearing materials.
