Technical Abstract: The dry soil of summer, mud in spring and fall, and frozen soil in winter do not appear to be living, but soil is overflowing with life. A healthy soil, one full of active microorganisms, is essential to agriculture. Healthy soil produces healthy plants efficient in the accumulation of nutrients, weed suppressive, and erosion control through extensive root systems. Soil is alive!
