The numerous organisms living in our soils play a significant role in a healthy soil system and to grow healthy plants. These microorganisms work to break down organic matter and provide more nutrients for plants. This life functions as a living system in your soil and represents a constant interaction among the biology living in soil. The healthiest soils have more of this mutually beneficial life and form a symbiotic relationships between the plant and the soil.
- Nutrient Cycling – Healthy microbial populations optimize nutrient cycling to create and release nutrients in plant available forms
- Nutrient Retention – Immobilize and retain nutrients when plants are not actively growing
- Disease Suppression – Healthy soil microbes out compete, predate and inhibit pathogenic organisms
- Improved Soil Structure – infiltration and water holding capacity of soils
- Plant Uptake of Nutrients – Enhanced efficiency and effectiveness of applied nutrients
