Soil transformations

I like that we can now craft medium-fertility soil with compost to get high-fertility soil.  This seems extensible - add compost to barren soil to get low-fertility soil, and add to low-fertility to get medium-fertility. 

It occurred to me that you could inverse the transform when digging up farmland.  Digging up terra preta farmland gets blocks of high-fertility soil, digging up high-fertility farmland gets blocks of medium fertility soil, medium to low, low to barren.  You could farm the soil down to zero, turn it all over and plow it and get an immediate nutrient boost, but not back where it was, and at the cost of total nutrient capacity.  Repeat the process until you have barren soil to squeeze the last drop of life out of a farm.
