Webinar - Soil Sponge and Ecological Function

Description

Craig Madsen explains the Soil Sponge is a biologically active soil that is porous and well aggregated and is held together by biological glues produced by fungi, bacteria, and other soil organisms. Pores are created by worms and other soil organisms. These soil aggregates and pores are water stable and allow water to be rapidly absorbed. The stable pore space also allows for air exchange which is necessary for a biologically active soil and for efficient cycling of nutrients.
