Organic matter comes from decaying plants, animals or microorganisms. Organic matter is rich in nutrients and helps stabilise the soil.

What makes up a healthy soil?

The biological aspect is organic matter—the portion of soil that was once living plants or animals. That's one of the things that makes soil microorganisms so important.
