Importance Of Mulching
When you have planted a tree at your home it is very important to mulch it so that the tree can get the many benefit that mulching has.
With mulching the newly grown tree gets to be safe from harsh temperature that might destroy it because mulching prevents the hot sun and winds from penetrating the soil of which at the end it conserves the coolness and the moisture of the soil so the tree cannot be affected by any harsh temperature. The sols that supports that tree that you recently planted and is growing fine since you applied mulch on it cannot be made to have erosion because the mulch on is very thick and heavy that heavy rains or strong winds cannot carry it away from the soil ten destroy the soil which will end up destroying the tree so mulching protects both soil and tree.
The soil’s fertility is improved when mulching is done to a tree especially when it rails the rain tends to carry the minerals and plant nutrients that the materials which are made on the mulch contains then when it reach the soil it’s structure is improves and the plants nutrients improves the soil fertility too. Mulching saves farmers labour and time because when they happen to apply mulch on their from before weeds starts to grow the farm will have less weeds and also the soil will be lose all the time so it will reduce the need of cultivation.
Mulching reduces fungal and rot diseases that may be caused when the soil comes in contact with the fruit and leaves of the plant especially if you mulch tomatoes or melons that are usually prone to fungal diseases. Mulching helps in keeping weeds out from the plant hence preventing root competition of which it will it enables the plant to get all the nutrients it might needed to grow as fast as possible and it will grow being healthy and strong.
The soil is protected from evaporation when you apply mulching to plants this happens when mulching reduces water use up to 75%b hence making it hard for evaporation to occur making the soil to be safe from being damaged and also the plant that is supported by the soil. The plants that you mulch will definitely grow fast even without you noticing because mulching encourages the worms that aerate the soil thus providing the soil with more fertiliser in form of warm casting which makes the soil to be healthy and also the soil because the fertiliser that will be in it is a natural fertiliser.
