Is there any method to improve my soil fertility. The soil is brackish in nature?
A farmer named Mr. Kalubhai Thakor in Dehda village in Anand, Gujarat uses rainwater to improve brackish soil. He fills his less than one hectare of land with organic manure before rain. Water gets accumulated in the field because of the bund built around the land. Accumulated water is not allowed to drain out. Next year the same practice is repeated. If this practice is followed for two consecutive years without growing any crops then brackish soil can be converted into fertile land. He grows paddy after the soil becomes fertile. Many farmers of the village who have brackish soil have used this technique.
