Why are some people still so wary of going organic? – Dallas News

Stimulating and maintaining healthy soil is the key. It is not complicated, just different. Simply stop doing what hurts the life in the soil and instead choose only those inputs that benefit life in the soil.

1. Stop using all synthetic fertilizers and toxic pesticides that harm living organisms. High-nitrogen fertilizers feed plants poorly and actually hurt soil microbes. Toxic chemical pesticides control pests poorly, and they are toxic.

2. Build soil health with natural organic fertilizers and amendments. Apply compost, rock materials such as lava sand, and microbe stimulators like dry molasses and cornmeal.

3. Use native plants and well-adapted introductions that behave themselves, water carefully and use soft-acting natural pest controls when needed.
