Soil improvement 

Trees and plants need good soilconditions if they are to give thegood yield. Try to improve the soilwith a lot of organic matter in theform of compost which helpsdrainage and aeration on hard soilsand preserves moisture in it. Animalmanures, green plant material,compost and mixture of shrub andtree leaves are especially good forimproving soil condition. Tilt the soiland apply these organic materialsand allow it to decay. Do not usematerials which decay very slowly.Never use chemical fertilizers toimprove your soil. The chemicals inthe fertilizers will spoil your soil andduring rainy season the chemicalsflow through drainage to yourneighours land and their land soilwill also get spoiled.
