The local results showed that many, if not most, of the farms needed to adjust pH through liming, as well as increase their fertilization plans.

Soil management has come a long way, and crop yields have increased 400 or 500 percent. Soil erosion can't be stopped, but we have a better handle on it.

Researchers from Ohio State University are working with private farmers to test the benefits of soil balancing, and organic farming.

Compost enriches the soil by helping it retain moisture and also reduces the need for chemical fertilizers while also suppressing plant diseases and pests.

Grass clippings affect carbon and nitrogen levels in two ways: directly by simply being present but also indirectly by serving as fertilizer for the grass.
