What is soil preservation?
Being an organic gardener for many years, I think I can answer this question with a good deal of accuracy. For one thing, soil is made up of many microorganisms, organic matter, and minerals. In order for soil to be healthy and preserved in a way to keep it healthy, and in place, many things must be considered.
- If used for agriculture, (gardening or farming) the soil must always be replenished in nutrients, and organic matter.
- t must be prevented from eroding and washing away, by the use of mulches, and plants which keep it in place, through a network of roots.
- Trees are a good thing for soil conservation, as well as small plants, whose roots keep it from washing away.
- Chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and planting the same things over and over, are bad for soil. Chemicals kill microorganisms, which are essential for good soil. Microorganisms help break organic matter down into soil. Have you ever wondered why the soil in a forest is so black and rich? It's from leaves decomposing over time.
- The dust bowl of the 30's, with resultant crop failure, was partially caused by chemicals, machinery, and the planting of one crop over time (wheat). At first production was so good, the farmers made a lot of money. There was so much wheat, that the price fell drastically, and the farmers went broke, then abandoned their farms. Then a drought hit, and the soil was so barren, it just blew away, creating the infamous "Dust bowl".
- If you garden, it's very important to return nutrients to the soil.
- Composting, adding leaves and other organic materials helps very much, and prevents the need for chemical fertilizers.
- Washing away of soil, is also a consideration.
- Be sure to mulch, and not till too often if possible. You'd be surprised what will grow without tilling the earth.
- Vary the plants you have in one area, different plants steal different nutrients. Varying the crops helps.
- Return the plant waste each season back into the soil. The key thing here is nutrients.
- Another big problem with soil is the deterioration of the top soil (result: dustbowl). It's important for plant life and just holding everything together. Water distribution. You name it. Plowing and other practices can mess it up causing erosion and runoff.

Soil is the top layer of the earth in which plants grow, a dark brown or black mixture usually of mineral and organic constituents, clay and rock particles. Soil is made of 45% minerals (sand,clay,silt), 25% Water, 25% Air and 5% Organics. Soil also includes dirt that is made of materials that… plants avoid growing in. Hence, soil a mixture of decayed organic material, living organisms, and minerals. The organic materials come from dead plants like banana peels and last year's leaves. The living organisms range in size from moles to microscopic bacteria. The minerals come from the rocks underground which are classified as bedrock. Soil is made up of many layers. This is due to the fact that plants grow on top of the soil and rocks are found underground. The type of soil that forms in a region will depend upon the climate, the bedrock underground, or the plants growing there. Although all soils are made of these basic ingredients, there are many variations. In forests for example, the soil may be deep, rich, and may have a dark brown color. In sandy areas the soil will be dry with a dusty gray color. In tropical regions the soil is often very deep and bright red. Soil consists of all different minerals, sand, silt, clay and gravel in varying ratios. Higher amounts of each are termed as different types of soil. One with high amounts of sand would be sandy soil, silt soil, and clay soil. In architecture and construction of foundations, this component of the soil is important to consider. (MORE)
A preservative is a natural or synthetic chemical that is added toproducts such as foods, pharmaceuticals, paints, biologicalsamples, wood, etc. to prevent decomposition by microbial growth orby undesirable chemical changes.
Answer . Many foods include preservatives to increase the shelf life of a certain product, and even sometimes the taste, ie. MSG.
Well, the word preserve can mean a few things. In general it means to keep something for a long period of time. A preserve can be like an Animal Preserve... a place where animals can go to be safe from hunters, and where people are trying to protect (preserve) them. If your grandmother makes preserv…es, that is usually jam or jelly that is made from fruit (making fruit into preserves is a way of keeping the fruit preserved... so it won't go bad). (MORE)

\nhang flowers upside down in a warm dry space and they will air dry, a spray of hairspray will prevent any petals falling
\nPreserve means keep, maintain. For example, to "preserve the Union" would mean to keep it from falling apart into independent states.
There are actually quite a few different ways to preserve flowers. I have received many arrangements and have dried flowers all over! That is how I prefer to preserve them. I wait until they are at the point I want to preserve them at, then I tie a piece of string to the bottom of the stem and hang …it upside down until it is completely dry. This preserves the color too. Don't hang it from the wall though, your flowers will have a flat side). A great way to quickly dry flowers while preserving both the color and shape of the blooms is to use Silica Gel, as found in Flower Drying Crystals. These are easy to use, simply place the flowers and Silica Gel in an airtight container. I have used them to dry everything from roses to daisies, wild flowers, to orchids. (MORE)
Lilies are difficult to preserve because of their high moisture content. Drying them (the most common preservation method) yeilds poor results. The reason is that the large petals of the lily do not dry to true color nor with smooth results.. If you should decide to try to do this, I would reccomme…nd the silica method. This involves a container large enough to hold the lily without touching the sides of the container and silica granules. Pour the silica into the container enough to hold the lily upright, then gently settle the silica onto the flower until the lily is completely covered by the silica. Let the container sit open for about two weeks then slowly and carefully pour the silica out of the container. The lily should be dry and preserved in as good a shape as possible. Spray with a polymer plastic to further preserve the lily. (MORE)
A preservative is a substance, usually chemical, that is used to prolong the shelf life of a product.
For this, you'll need to read the labels. Most foods labeled as organic would not be using preservatives. But I understand that there are a few preservatives that could be considered organic. I believe that rosemary extract has some preservative qualities.
The reason we need soil is so that we can have crops and plants.We also have soil to give us the foundation for buildings.
See pages 9-11 of your East African Rift Lab Reading. I'll bet I'm in your class. lol Forest floors are generally wetter and have more organisms living there than in prairies.
It means to keep stay united. A good example of this was the American War Between the States also known as the Civil War. The war was fought to keep the states united into one country instead of two separate countries.
Tropicana has many different products, but I'm guessing you are referring to their refrigerated juices. Those have been pastuerized.

Judaism has been preserved throughout the ages because of Jewish adherence to the Torah, the Holy Ancient Jewish Text.
If you haven't cut them open yet then the best way is punting them in the freezer to slow down the expiration time of them, but if you have already cut them open then the best way is to add some lemon juice to keep them fresh and cover the avocado with some plastic wrap.
Spoon your ice cream into a freezer-safe, airtight container for storage. Do not place the cap on yet. . Step 2. Lay a sheet of plastic wrap over the container.

Celery stalks and carrot sticks can be kept from wilting and will stay fresh much longer by storing in bowls or glasses of ice water rather than just left laying dry in the fridge. Lettuce that is already cut does not do well in water. To keep a salad with lettuce in it for a couple of days use Ro…maine and other sturdier varieties instead of Iceberg type. Also, do not put dressing on the salad until ready to serve. Remove excess water from advanced washing by paper towels or better yet - a salad spinner. It is the water that weighs the salad down and makes the lettuce soggy. (MORE)
Jam if made at home must be put into pre boiled jam jar's and still hot. To keep the top of the jam free of fungus wet the top of the jam with a little rum.
Acid creates too harsh of an environment for bacteria and molds to cultivate in. A harsh PH level in either direction will have the same effect. You do, however, need to be careful on using these in consumables. Preservatives are unhealthy to consume (hence the whole organic foods business).
Cookies do not need artificial preservatives because they are high in sugar. Many types of cookies are well suited to either freezing for many months, or to keeping in tins or air-tight containers for months. However, commercial cookies often contain artificial preservatives.
Fruit can be preserved in several ways, here are a few examples, bananas, grapes and plums can be dried, berries can be used to make jam or deep frozen, oranges make marmalade, lemons can be pickled.

In an airtight jar and the more sugar to add to the chutney the last it should last.
Lord Narayana is the preserver. The actual Hindu preserver god: Vishnu - the preserver: Every Hindu knows Vishnu, also known as Narayana, as the preserver. This is because he is symbolic of the Semi voluntary force. This force makes everything in our life to stay between an upper and a low…er limit, due to the presence of the Negative and the Positive attitudes. Vishnu would not allow as to cross these limits under normal conditions. Vishnu - the transformer: Due to incarnations, Vishnu enables us to change enormously between these two limits. 1. Rama, symbolic of the negative attitude, enables us to be totally satisfied with whatever we have and be adherent to dharma even under extreme conditions. 2. In marked contrast, Krishna, symbolic of the Positive attitude, enables us to succeed at all costs. 3. Venkateshwara, another incarnation of Vishnu, enables us to have just a virtual existence between the attitudes and acquire wealth compulsively yet safely. He is undoubtedly, the most acceptable Hindu god in this materialistic world. Thus, even though Vishnu is known as the preserver, he allows us to change our life more than any other Hindu god. The actual Hindu preserver god: The Hindu god, which eternally doesn't allow even the minutest change in our life under any condition, is Brahman. Thus, Brahman is the absolute and eternal Hindu preserver, of dharma and of our life. The popular preserver: Since most Hindus can't understand Brahman and don't want the rigidity Brahman gives, they consider Vishnu himself as the preserver. (MORE)
Bananas can be preserved by drying thin slices in a food dehydrator. They can also be dried outdoors or in the oven. See related links below. Bananas can also be frozen sliced, or whole (peeled or unpeeled).

Because if we don't we will have no more animals and no more oxygen so we would all die out.
Because they are preserved in a jar, and while most strawberries would rot, they last longer and to me, they taste the same.
Soil is created by worms. Worms eat organic material, and soil, and then they poop out soil.

Chemically speaking, the preservatives act as enzyme inhibitors that slow the chemical reactions that lead to the food spoiling.
yes because salt is a kind of molecule that would help to preserve the fruit and make it last longer
the truth is that you cant you need animals poo or fertiliser to keep healthy soil to stay. sorry.
soil is not renewable and we might use it all to quickly due tothe expanding #s of people
Yes, especially plants with fibrous root systems such as grasses. The roots provide resistance to the flow of water and the stems and leaves provide resistance to wind. Soil particles become trapped in the various plant parts instead of moving away with the erosive force.
first of all it is what is soil not what are soil and soil is the dirty dirt on the ground that's every were in the world but not in any kind of water
