Ploughing and adding manure are the two activities that promote the growth of microorganisms in the soil.
Ploughing creates air spaces and reduces soil compaction. It loosens the soil particles and promotes the growth of earthworms. Due to ploughing, water seeps well into the soil and provides adequate moisture conditions for the microbes to grow. Ploughing also makes the soil fertile.
Adding manure and compost material serves to provide adequate food for these organisms. It helps in their better survival. Earthworms derive their nutrition from organic compost.
