Soil Enrichment with Green Manures...! Green manuring - the growing and turning under of crops to fertilize and improve the soil - is an age-old practice that is gaining popularity again. One reason has been the sharp rising costs of chemical fertilizers. Green manures add huge amounts of organic material to the soil, cover crops prevent erosion, catch crops prevent the leaching away of nutrients, and all overlap in their contributions to your garden and crops.
