|Products with organic matter.
The contribution of organic matter to our soils is essential for effective fertilization and good plant health in our crops.
Organic matter increases the nutrient retention capacity of the soil, improving its fertility and the effectiveness of subsequent fertilizations, increasing the cation exchange capacity of the soil and facilitating the availability of nutrients by dissolving insoluble mineral components (phosphates) or by transforming soluble nitrogen. in organic nitrogen avoiding its loss by leaching or as ammonia in the air.
Organic matter also improves water retention capacity, providing greater resistance to water stresses in crops, protecting our soils against erosion by increasing water retention and favoring root growth, thus combating problems of desertification.
A soil with good levels of organic matter will enjoy better plant health by improving soil porosity, facilitating aeration and respiration of the roots, increasing infiltration and permeability of the soil, or providing a better structure to the soil, contributing to its stability, compacting sandy soils, and breaking up compact soils.
We must not forget the contribution to the plants of nutrients and energy, which stimulate their plant development, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, iron, manganese, zinc, boron, molybdenum, copper, etc ...
