This special report was put together to help farmers understand soil fertility and the connection with crop yields. From Neal Kinsey’s explanation of how to nurture soils so they become a thriving, productive system to the importance of sulfur to identifying nutrient imbalances on real-life soil tests, the topics covered illuminate today’s generally accepted understanding of soil fertility.
But this is an evolving field, and recent research on soil microbiology is turning up interesting evidence about how plants can farm microbes and turn them into nutrients. So we’ve also included a story about James White’s research on the rhizophagy cycle to shed light on this emerging field of understanding.
We hope this collection will provide useful information to help you make sense of the complex interactions taking place between plants and the soil that ultimately have an impact on your bottom line.
