Jerry Brunetti discusses the importance of biological farming and how it helps keep the soil healthy for better food supply.
The entire food chain is connected to soil health, from plant and insect health, all the way up to animal and ultimately your healthWe’ve come to appreciate that the maintenance of intestinal flora is really essential for your health just as it is in the soilThe root ball of the plant is the “gut” or intestinal tract of the plant. In botanical terms, it’s called the rhizosphere, and it houses microbes just like the your gut does, provided the soil system is healthyBiological farming helps keep the planet healthy by sequestering carbon in the soilIt also prevents the loss of topsoil and increases the soil’s water-holding capacity, which provides natural drought resistance. It also helps reduce and boosts nutrient uptake in the plants
