[Video] Earthworms: Bioengineers and Sentinels of Living No-Tilled Soils

Most no-tillers know the presence of earthworms is an important sign of healthy soils, but their role in farming systems goes well beyond simply digesting residue and improving water infiltration with the tunnels they burrow, says Paul Reed Hepperly.

The Maryville, Tenn.-based agricultural consultant, educator and scientist has studied earthworms for many years and will highlight little-known facts about earthworm behavior and the important job these belowground creatures play in nutrient recycling and balancing soil acidity and soil health. The former research director at The Rodale Institute will also share how no-tillers can create a more favorable environment for earthworms.
