Maintaining soil health is key to promoting sustainable agricultural practices. The overall goal of sustainable agriculture is to ensure that future generations are able to utilize healthy agricultural practices without compromising yield. Healthy soil is linked to numerous benefits, including – but not limited to – positive yield, water holding capacity, decreased runoff rates, and filtration of contaminants.

However, don’t just take our word for it

Crops & Soils states “there are clear benefits from increased organic matter with reduced erosion, greater nutrient utilization, reduced nitrogen leaching, and better water quality”.

“Beneficial  organisms  improve  soil  structure,  cycle  nutrients  and  reduce  the  impact of soilborne diseases, while pests and pathogens feed on roots and debilitate plants. Because  soil  organisms  are  the  regulators  that  drive  many  important  soil  processes,  it  is  impossible to discuss issues related to soil health without considering the biology of the soil”
