The benefits of chop and drop.

Daron said,
" Supports soil life.
- Leaves the roots of the plants in the soil, which adds organic material deep in the soil as the roots decompose.
- Reduces water loss from evaporation.
- Slowly releases nutrients back into your soil.
- Saves you time and energy by eliminating the need to compost or haul the plant material away.

I just didn't believe chop and drop really worked for years.

I now am a firm believer that this method does work and that the benefits a truly real.

What do you feel or why does this work for you?
