Green Materials What is green manure?

Question by Damoni Girl: What is green manure?

Best answer:

Answer by spiderman
Green manure is a fast-growing crop such as mustard or tares (vetch) planted on to vacant ground. The crop is dug into the soil before it has a chance to produce seed, so the green material rots in the ground and adds fertility to the soil. It is a useful crop anywhere but can be particularly valuable on sandy soil.
