I dont think anyone knows exactly how those folks did it way back when or why.
Was it by accident or for a reason?
They probably noticed the plants were greener in the char piles at first.
Then there is the fact it was done in very poor soil not good soil.
It is only now that people are realizing just how advanced these folks were and how wide spread they were.
All it took was a little interaction with some sick Spaniards and it wiped out the whole bunch leaving a few to run off and spread the sickness to everyone else.
