Tillage changes the way microorganisms decompose and recycle organic residues and nutrients. In fact, soil organic matter levels have decreased 60% to 70% during the last century due to tillage.
Jim Hoorman will discuss the invaluable process of nitrogen and phosphorus cycling, the need to achieve proper carbon-tonitrogen ratios, the role of microbes and how practicing no-till and adding cover crops to your rotation are critical to soil ecology. The Ohio State University Extension educator will also talk about the “root” causes of soil compaction and how more roots will build improved soil structure.
