how to keep beneficial bacteria, fungi micro organisms in the soil
I rcommended reading these links, as you will gain a good grasp of what is needed to maintain soil microbiology.
INTRO: I am really impressed with the following well-writen article. I include an EXTRACT of a list of questions to ask regarding Soil Micro organisms.
Below are some important questions to consider that can also help test your knowledge of soil microorganisms.
- Do microbes always work as they are expected regardless of the conditions or temperature?
- If your soil’s microorganism levels were actually low, (which is difficult to tell without a specific test) will simply adding more microbes be the solution?
- Are all microbes the same in importance or function?
- What situations may indicate that soil microorganisms are not what is needed?
