Leilani Zimmer-Durand Audio: Soil Biology
Recorded live at the 2021 Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show in Covington, Kentucky, Dec. 6-9, 2021.
Building soil health builds resiliency into your farming system. There is no easy definition or easy path to soil health. Farms are complex systems, and it takes trial and error to find the best practices that will build soil health on your farm. However, there are some tried and true practices that build organic matter, balance minerals, and promote healthy soil microbes. We’ll dig into what those key practices are, the science behind why they work, and talk through some examples from farms that have implemented biological farming practices with a lot of success. We’ll also talk through why building soil carbon can be a lucrative venture beyond just building resilience and sustainability on your farm.
