My name is Che Axum and I have a question about soil management.
Could you effectively create a sustainable organic farming crop
system in the southeast (Maryland) without using animal manures?
Could this system be created and maintained with the use of organic
fertilizers and different cover crops (green manures) and rotations?
The short answer is “yes.” The longer answer will
involve much more information on what you expect to grow, acreage,
resources at hand including equipment, capital, time, storage, etc.
The fact that green manures and cover crops can supply all the
nitrogen and carbon to the system is documented. We would need to
take a closer look at all the aspects of your operation to design
a workable system.
