With a restored soil food web in place, plants can control the nutrient cycling happening in their root zones, accessing the minerals that are stored in organic matter and in the parent material. Plants get a constant flow of nutrients that they control. The soil food web provides protection against pests and diseases and also inhibits the growth of weeds. When the soil food web is restored, farmers no longer need to apply chemicals as ecosystem functions are restored. Reduced irrigation helps conserve water and reduce costs. Learn about the food web, how it works, how you can utilize it, and how it can make your life easier in the garden and lawn.
