Just A Random Thought On The Best Type Of Soil For Farming by miracle4(m): 8:37am On Dec 31, 2020
Hello,

I am a complete novice in this niche but was having a funny thought earlier today. Please don't laugh at my question, even if it's far from reasonable. Now here is my question:

Assuming that I have a vast and large land at Umuahia, where I wish to plant maize, groundnut, or cash crops, but this land is notorious for badly performing on those types of items. I now dig out a large chunk of the soil (say up to 4 feet or thereabout), and fill it up with trips of soil from Ebonyi State (where such crops perform well), and allow it to sink evenly.

Would this action make this land (at Umuahia) a fertile land capable of yielding good products like its Ebonyi State counterpart?

Another is - If the soil's texture and yield-ability can be improved by the method above, is it better to go with this natural method than using chemicals (fertilizers, etc.) to improve the soil yields?

In my own experience, there is no soil that is bad for farming in Nigeria (even the once with oil pollution), go for soil test, and besides you didn't provide info on the soil textures etc.... But the most common in Nigeria to fix soil related issues is by applying manure.... But if you tell us the soil texture you can suggest the right manure for your soil
