Plant Residues

Plant residues refer to the organic matter left behind after harvest, such as leaves, stalks, and roots. These residues can play an important role in soil health, as they provide nutrients for soil organisms and promote soil structure and water retention. They can also help to reduce soil erosion and increase carbon sequestration in soil. In agriculture, plant residues can be managed through techniques such as conservation tillage, cover cropping, and composting. Overall, the management of plant residues is an important aspect of sustainable agriculture that can improve soil health and support long-term food security.
