a) Use organic compost to nourish the sterile land by adding materials like leaves, wood chips, bark, hay or even discarded fruits and vegetables. This will add nutrient content to the superficial layers of the soil, making it more suitable for cultivation.
b) Add animals such as earthworms, ants, or other arthropods to the soil. These animals break down organic matter in the soil into small particles readily absorbed by plants, making the soil more fertile
c) Water the soil regularly
d) Start growing plants. Even if the plants die, continue efforts to grow new plants, as the old dead plants will nourish the soil and make it more fertile for the subsequent crops.
