Soil organic carbon plays an important role in maintaining soil fertility by holding nitrogen and sulphur in organic forms. It helps to hold soil particles together and thereby improve water holding capacity. Organic carbon loosens the soil and thereby increases the root growth. Organic carbon plays an important role as good source for soil fauna and flora. It suppresses crop diseases and act against toxic and harmful substances. Kayakalp helps the soil to achieve the right kind of soil organic carbon.
