A key role in developing healthy soil is to create strong soil biology by taking advantage of the soil food web. This seminar will look at the life of microbes so you understand the conditions they need to prosper. We’ll look at ways to measure the soil microbes to understand your current soil health and then we’ll look at various methods for increasing their population. We’ll examine some common concepts like the fungal-bacterial ratio, compost tea, commercial microbe products and the effect of tilling.
