How manure improves the texture of soil and how it makes it porous?

Manure is partially decomposed organic matter made by recycling animal and plant wastes. Manure is basically animal poop.

Examples of manure include rabbit, horse, and chicken poop, and bat guano, or cow dung. Urea is also used as manure.

Manure provides nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and other micronutrients to soil particles and soil microorganisms. These wastes and nutrients bring porosity to the soil by forming spaces among the soil particles. Thus, the addition of manure to the soil improves its texture and brings porosity to the soil.
