Green manuring as a booster for improvement of soil fertility and feasible method for reduction of global warming causing chemical fertilizer

Green manure crops tender a vast scope of benefits to soil and future crops. They are commonly used to improve the soil, for organic matter, nutrients or to control weeds. The benefits of a green manure crop outweigh the nutrients that they add back into the soil. They also feed the soil, which feeds the plant rather than the other way around. In feeding the soil, a green manure crop feeds all the soil organisms and improves the fertility of the soil. A biologically fertile soil produces healthy plants that able to resist disease and combat pests in addition to a healthy soil has more drought resistant. By growing green manures you provide soil microbes with a boost as well as food and an environment they can thrive in. These microbes will convert the nutrients in the green manure into available nutrients for crops. By stimulating these soil organisms and proving a food source, they also convert the unavailable nutrients in the soil into available nutrients. Hence, green manure is a viable and feasible source as a not just soil conditioner to improve the soil fertility, but also ecofriendly thereby curtails the chemical fertilizer added to a soil.
