Manure is added to soil when soil is too acidic. Manure produces increased soil carbon, which is an important source of energy that makes nutrients available to plants. Nitrogen, phosphorus and other nutrient elements are supplied by manure to increase the fertility of the soil and also speeds up decomposition, and lowers the soil’s acidity level, or pH, less than chemical fertilizers.
