Silt is the unsung hero of natural processes. Silty soil is usually more fertile than other types of soil, meaning it is good for growing crops. Silt promotes water retention and air circulation, and in many parts of the world, agriculture has thrived in river deltas where silt deposits are rich, and along the sides of rivers where annual floods replenish silt.
