The preferred choice for farmers of Agricultural Tracks

In today’s highly advanced world we often gravitate toward the most scientific information and practices available.  After all, those techniques are the culmination of many years of research and that’s what we want, right?  When it comes to your soil’s health, you can rely on methods such as meters, professional soil testers, DIY test kits, and even a process that involves a mason jar to check the fertility of your soil, but there’s another tactic that you might find both interesting and practical.  It involves burying those famed “tighty whities”.

Yes, the premise behind doing this is that the soft cotton will be quickly eaten by microbes and bacteria in the soil if it’s healthy.  Fertile soil should have millions of tiny lifeforms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, arthropods and earthworms that all contribute towards turning rotting material into nutrients that help plants survive.

So give this method a try, but remember the underwear has to be new and laundered before you bury it.  Don’t use underwear with a colored past…  If your soil is healthy there won’t be anything left but the elastic strap and that’s a good thing.  If it lacks fertility, that’s not good, but at least you’ll have a pair of underwear that you can wash and then exchange for others you have that might appear as though something in your drawer has been devouring them. If you’ve changed your preference to boxers, you can just be thankful that the underwear you buried educated you on the condition of your land.

The “Soil My Undies” challenge was launched by the California Farmer’s Guild and is being adopted by various ag organizations around the world.  Who knows, this practice may mean a comeback for the original underwear style.

Take a look at the video below to get a feel for this interesting soil testing application.
