Description:
In addition to the organic matter supplied by the cover crop, many nurseries add organic amendments such as sawdust during the fallow year. Nitrogen fertilizer is added at the same time to speed the decomposition rate; if no fertilizer is supplied, the microorganisms will utilize all the nitrogen in the soil and cause a deficiency in the subsequent seedling crop.
