Ever wonder what exactly soil does for your crops and for your fields?
Soil stores and moderates the release of nutrients and other elements which can be made available to plants, sequestered in the soil, or lost to air or water.
Soil regulates the flow and storage of water, including nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, pesticides, and other nutrients or compounds dissolved in water.
Soil supports the growth of a variety of plants, animals, and microorganisms by providing a diverse physical, chemical, and biological habitat.
Soil acts as a filter to protect the quality of water, air, and other resources.
