Foundations for a successful crop

In order to produce a good crop these principles should be applied

  • Maintain a mulch cover.  Don’t burn!
  • Maintain the soil structure & preserve the natural fauna.  Don’t plough!
  • Plant according to precise spacings and specifications in order to achieve optimal plant populations that give your plants the best chance to thrive.  (See ‘Resources’ to see our recommendations)
  • Give nutrition to your plants in whichever form you are able i.e. manure, compost, etc.
  • Weed regularly and thoroughly catching the weeds while they are small in order to save time and energy and cause the whole system to become far more manageable.
