The benefits of quality
Improves the quality of almost any soil, and for this reason it is most often considered a soil conditioner. Improves the structure and texture of the soil enabling it to better retain nutrients, moisture, and air for the betterment of plants.
Incorporating into soil dramatically improves soil structure. Soil structure refers to how inorganic particles (sand, silt, clay) combine with decayed organic particles. Soil with good structure has a crumbly texture, drains well, retains some moisture, and is easy to turn over. “Crumbly” is a rather vague descriptor referring to how it is held together. A soil amended with compost shows that it is made up of many round, irregular aggregates. Aggregates are groups of particles loosely bound together by secretions of worms and compost bacteria giving it this crumbly appearance. If you lightly crush one of these aggregates, it breaks down into smaller aggregates. Crumbly soil allows air to penetrate and holds moisture well but allows excess water to drain away. Tender young roots also have an easier time penetrating into the soil.
A well-structured soil with lots of small aggregates stays loose and is easy to cultivate, improving all soil types, especially sandy and heavy clay soils.
