ELAINE INGHAM SOIL BIOLOGY PRIMER PDF

The Primer includes units describing the soil food web and its relationship to soil health, and units about bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, arthropods, and earthworms. By more thoroughly mixing microbes with their food, arthropods enhance organic matter decomposition. When foraging, springtails walk with 3 pairs of legs like most insects, and hold their tail tightly tucked under the belly. A square yard of cropland in the United States can con- tain from earthworms, or even larger populations in highly organic soils.

Watch the animation on Soil Carbon Sequestration. The soil food web microorganisms build soil structure that prevents erosion by wind and rain. Compaction layers are broken-up, allowing water and plant roots to penetrate deeper, fostering healthier growth and increased productivity.

Watch the animation on the formation of soil to learn more. Restoring the Soil Food Web to agricultural soils restores productivity and profitability to agriculture and results in substantial levels of carbon sequestration, and has the potential, if implemented on a global scale, to return atmospheric carbon to the safe level as identified by the IPCC.

Elaine Ingham is recognized as the foremost soil biologist in the world. The complete Soil Food Web can be found in virgin soils around the world. Here is what some farmers have reported. We train people who help farmers to transition away from using chemicals, to using biology. This results in significant benefits to the farmer and to the environment, as well as to the consumer.

This is a comprehensive program comprising over 60 lectures. You will be guided through the step-by-step implementation process by one of our highly qualified and experienced mentors.

The results are quantifiable and significant!

Soil Biology Primer by Elaine R. Ingham -

Soil Biology The creatures living in the soil are critical to soil health. They affect soil structure and therefore soil erosion and water availability. They can protect crops from pests and diseases. They are central to decomposition and nutrient cycling and therefore affect plant growth and amounts of pollutants in the environment. Soil Biology Primer The online Soil Biology Primer is an introduction to the living component of soil and how it contributes to agricultural productivity and air and water quality.
