Remember, the soil is just dirt without the biology that manufactures the nutrients to feed plants. As long has you have dirt, you will not deplete the raw goods necessary to grow.

1) Practices that are known to work in replenishing this fertility? (I know of a few but am curious about other practices)
2) How big of an issue this is?
3) Perennial alternatives to straw in various applications?
