SPECIAL WORKSHOP: Courting the Two ‘M’s’ that Make or Break Your Soil’s Biological System
Tiny organisms play a powerful role in building productive no-till soils, but a lot still must be learned about the specific players in the system and how to maximize their presence and effectiveness. Two of these invaluable organisms are metarhizium and mycorrhizal fungi and they’re both essential to your soil resource, says James Hoorman.
In this exclusive workshop, the former NRCS educator and owner of Hoorman Soil Health Services introduces metarhizium fungi and defines its role as a soil health parasite to over 200 insect species and recycler of soil nitrogen. Hoorman also outlines the importance of mycorrhizal fungi functions, reports on what mycorrhizae species are present in the soil and which ones are needed to improve agricultural production, as well as discusses ag products that are harmful or helpful to establishment of these fungi in no-till systems.
