As I have farmed my whole life, I was first trained that you need all
the chemical fertilizer and micro's and all that. Of course recently I have
started to switch over to the organic ways of doing things. Now I have been
VERY fortunate to have some great mentors who not only think as I do but
also very successful for several years as organic farmers.
Here is what they have relayed to me.
Through proper rotation the soil balances itself. After 3-4 years, all
without exception, have reported that their soil test have started to go
back up without any outside fertilizers. The crops pull what they need out
of the nutrient rich subsoil and brings it to the surface where it can be
used. Their crops continue to improve.
All the farmers use someform of compost, primarily off threir own farm.
