Preparation of the soil
At this stage the soil at this stage is very sandy and friable and does not hold the plants well and much of the crop is developing poorly. The soil lacks nutrients and organic matter and biological agents such as earthworms. All areas of the plot that are in intended for arable use should be improved by means of Biochar, organic compost, pelletized poultry manure, other animal manures, compost activator and blood and bone, mycorrhizal fungi mycelium or mycorrhizal fungi spores and kitchen waste, straw/hay, wood chips and leafy matter. The more nutrients added the better.
