Soil and Water Management

Effective water and soil management is critical to the success or failure of any farm.

Proper soil and water management prevents the loss of plant nutrients that can result from leaching, bush burning, soil erosion and other bad farm management practices.

A farmer should learn to manage the soil in such a way that plant nutrients are not lost and water is retained in the soil.

In this section of the Beehive, we will look at ways to manage soil and water in order to maximize production and preserve the environment.
