  • Moulding – gathering soil around the plant to avoid soil erosion, and for proper aeration.
  • Mulching – the placing of dry grass, cardboard or plastic to keep soil moist and prevent soil erosion.
  • Staking – a stick is placed besides a plant to prevent it from bending or fruit from touching the ground.
  • Weeding – the removal of unwanted plants. (Weeds compete for nutrients)
  • Pruning – the removal of branches of the center and end of plant to allow sunlight.
  • Irrigation – the watering of the plant for growth and development.
  • Fertilizing – adding nutrients to the soil.
  • (The placing of organic or chemical manure to the soil to improve nutrients)
