Mix up some soupy grout and squirt it in the crack between the dirt and concrete.

I had my six foot cedar fence professionally installed in the early 80's and quite a few of the 4x4 posts on the west side cracked at ground level within the first five years. I had the fence company replace them, and they attached a V shaped angle iron nailed to each post before it was set in concrete. Those posts are still solid as can be today, even as the wind is howling outside at 30mph as I type this.
