Microbes are microscopic organisms that can’t be seen by the naked eye. They live in and on the human body in the form of both beneficial and harmful bacteria. The same goes for soil. In fact, there are more microbes in a teaspoon of soil than there are people on the earth. Among other things, the presence of microbes ensures that organic material can be broken down into a form that is more readily absorbed by growing plants.
At one point in time, soil microbes had the nutrient balance needed to do their jobs. Today, our soil has been over worked and over treated with chemicals that have upset the critical balance of nutrients needed for microbes to thrive. By restoring missing nutrients into the soil, microbes can quickly and efficiently transform dead plant materials into soil organic matter. This healthy, “living” soil has a significantly improved ability to store carbon and water, tolerate stress, and fight disease and pests.
