Advanced Soil Organic Matter Management
MSU Extension Service
Michigan State University
Extension Publications E3137

Soil organic matter (SOM) is the foundation for productive soil. It promotes healthy crops, supplies resources for microbes and other soil organisms, and regulates the supply of water, air and nutrients to plants. SOM can deliver over half of the nitrogen and a quarter of the phosphorous crops require, thus strongly influencing fertilizer requirements.

This bulletin describes the agronomic practices you can use to build SOM and the scientific underpinnings of those practices. We encourage farmers, farm advisors, agency personnel and other stakeholders to use the information presented here to improve their crop and soil management plans to increase SOM. Part of this effort should include on-farm experiments, which are an important step in adapting recommendations to specific regions and cropping systems.
