Like us, soil needs a lot of oxygen, which is responsible for the explosion of life (together with nutrients and water) and this happens when there is harmony between the aerobic (large) and anaerobic (small) parts.
So we have to ‘restore’ fertility to the land, above all, by respecting the systems (humus management). Unfortunately, more than 90% of the potential of organic matter is wasted every year and that’s dramatic. Soil has a good memory and we’ll come to understand with increasingly difficulties that adequate economic results can only be achieved with increasingly onerous interventions of fertilizer, water and pesticides to the detriment of the whole production system, and for increasingly expensive and poor results.
