One tsp. of soil
can contain more than one billion beneficial microbes, including bacteria, fungi and protozoa.

Crops, like any other form of life, need food in order to grow and thrive. Soil health is an extremely critical part of farming, especially in light of the ever-increasing demand for food by an ever-increasing population. In order to feed the soil that feeds the crops, we apply manures and compost to our fields, and we also practice no-till farming to boost the soil's organic matter. We also apply nitrogen to some of our crops, but only after carefully calculating the plants' needs. This careful planning makes the most efficient use of the nitrogen and keeps it on the crops, which means it stays in the field and out of our waterways.
