An interview with Elaine Ingham, PhD, author of the Compost Tea Manual 5th ed., The Field Guide for Actively Aerated Compost Tea, and President and Director of Research at Soil Foodweb, Inc.
Our world is rich in life of all sizes. We live together and support each other in ways you may not be aware of. Good soil is not dead; it’s alive with a huge array of organisms. If we want healthy food we need healthy soil, for that we need healthy life within the soil. In this interview you’ll discover what organisms are present in the soil and on the foliage of your plants, which organisms benefit which types of plants, which organisms harm plants, how can these organisms be managed to grow plants with the least expensive inputs into the system while maintaining soil fertility. Topics covered:
· What Are All Those Organisms Doing in the Soil?
· “Going Biological” Saves Money, Reduces Pesticide Use and Increases Yields
· Growing Method Determines Nutritional Value of Food
· Healthy Soil – Loaded with Bacteria and Fungi!
· Fungal/Bacterial Balance Determines Which Plants Can Grow Where
· Grass-Roots Question: How to Improve Soil for Pasture and Hay?
· Raised Beds – Same Principles?
· Is Your Soil Sick? Diagnostic Testing and Treatment
· Can We Really Eat Soil Bacteria? And is it Helpful?
