That main thing that needs doing for the soil,,, which helps the roots,,, whichhelp the heat resistance is building up of SOM... increasing not only the CEC but water retention as well... after all, those nutrients attached to the CE sites, are not available with either,,, too much water or too little water...

If you talking about buying organic products to supply NPK in an organic form, you're just throwing away money... rotted leaves contribute the majority of the NPK contamination to our lakes and streams, its just that the abuse of synthetic fertilizers are so easily abused and so easily washed into storm sewers...

Urea from dog urine is no "Safer" than urea from any other source... And P from Bone Meal is still the same P found in rocks...

What sort of addition were you considering???
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
