What is Soil?
Soil is not just dirt,it is the foundation for all plant and animal life on land. Healthy living soil is a complex ecosystem, filled with an abundance of bio-diversity. The “beneficial soil micro-organisms” like beneficial bacteria and fungi provide nutrients, minerals, disease resistance, information, water, and more to plants. These organisms break down raw organic material and feed the appropriate amounts of nutrients to the appropriate plants. When beneficial micro-organisms are present, plants form synergistic relationships with them which help the plant grow and fight of pests.
Conventional agriculture uses synthetic salt based fertilizers that force feed plants nutrients in a way that can be very unhealthy and lead to disease. Also chemical herbicides kill soil life, making the plants and farmers dependent on the chemical companies. This industry relies on continual re-application of these chemicals, continued high input costs. Where as cultivating real healthy soil requires some input costs at first, but creates sustainable fertility that continues to grow. By switching from chemical based agriculture to living soil based agriculture, farmers decrease input costs dramatically while increasing yields.
