Soil has too much clay the organic matter increases the porosity of the soil, so that it drains better, allowing more oxygen, and preventing water logging.
The water is absorbed into the soil, and does not run off, preventing soil erosion. If the soil is too sandy soils organic matter retains water in the soil, and stops the soil drying out, keeping the roots moist, and cutting down on watering. So organic matter makes all soils better! Fresh organic matter decomposes too quickly for plant roots, and burns them. If it is not mixed into the soil it can prevent good drainage of water, harming the plants. It can take too much nitrogen from the soil to break it down, causing temporary shortage in the plants. It is difficult to plough and cultivate. If it decomposes without oxygen it can give out harmful soil pathogens, as they are anaerobic.
Solutions to your Composting needs.
Green manure is produced from plants. It is the cheapest way of adding organic matter to the soil. All that is required is to grow the green manure crop, and usually as it begins to flower, you plough it into the soil. Legumes such as peas and soya beans make good green manure but they must be planted thickly so that they stop weeds growing up. They can be left after ploughing in for two weeks and then the crop can be planted in the soil. Green manure is the quickest way of getting organic matter into the soil.
