Nitrogen fixing plants for the organic vegetable garden or garden

Both micronutrients and macronutrients are very important for the proper development of the plants in our organic orchard or garden. And specifically, nitrogen is the most important macronutrient. Nitrogen, among other functions, is responsible for the growth of plants, the proper development of the leaves, the production of seeds or the plant has a bright green color. If there is a nitrogen deficiency we will observe signs such as small yellowish leaves.

Nitrogen will favor the microbial activity of the soil, which in turn will facilitate the bioavailability of nutrients for plants. Nitrogen is found in the atmosphere and nitrogen-fixing plants , such as legumes, favor the biological fixation of nitrogen in the soil so that it is bioavailable for use.

Thanks to the fixation of nitrogen, the soil becomes more suitable for the development of plants. So we can consider nitrogen as a facilitator to biofertilize naturally by activating and boosting the activity of beneficial microorganisms.

But in addition, these beneficial bacteria are capable of protecting the roots of plants against pests and diseases, plants resist drought better, increase productivity, seeds are more likely to germinate, prevent soil erosion, facilitate the absorption of water, etc.

Nitrogen-fixing plants, shrubs, and trees

Acacia, clover, peas (peas), beans, broad beans, alfalfa, sorghum, oats, barley, corn, lentils, chickpeas, lupins, mosses, fern, in general grasses and legumes.

Incorporating these plants in your garden or garden, practicing crop rotations and using humus are very beneficial practices that will ensure you a fertile soil for your crops.
