We are seeing more and more evidence that shows the important role that biology plays in crop health and quality. We now know that biology in the soil can deliver more of the crop’s nutrients than we expect and that key realization is being too often ignored. But for our crops to take advantage of soil biology, we first need to have vigorous microbial populations established at germination.
David Miller, Director of Education of Advancing Eco Agriculture, explains the connections between soil health, plant health, and regenerative practices.
This webinar covers:
- How to use biology to reduce fertilizer needs.
- How to increase biology in lighter soils with low organic matter.
- How to boost microbial populations to improve soil health.
- How to provide the nutrients needed for crop quality and disease resistance.
- The most economical way to get your crops off to an optimal start.
- The difference between on and off farm biology.

David Miller, Director of Education
David comes from a teaching background and found profound correlations of how a student's diet affected their mental clarity in the classroom. From there he began an independent consulting business driven by a desire to put nutrition back into food. David joined AEA in 2011 and has a passion to teach farmers how to regenerate their farms by capitalizing on how plants and soils interact. His specialties include orchards and small fruits, especially blueberries. As the leader of the education effort, he directs ongoing education for new and existing consultants.
