Healthy soil is the foundation for a healthy ecosystem. Soil is home to billions of microorganisms that are responsible for the nutrient cycling, organic matter decomposition, and pest control. A healthy soil food web is vital; it sustains soil fertility, promotes plant growth, and maintains overall ecosystem health.
