Robert Kremer, Ph.D.: Soil Health Relative to Sustainable and Organic Systems and in Natural Ecosystems
Ecological farming conserves and improves soil resource and protects environmental quality by using organic or natural resources without the application of synthetic chemicals. The assessment of soil quality demonstrates the extent to which farmers can optimize soil productivity and maintain its structural and biological integrity. This multi-disciplined researcher explained how organic systems can impact fundamental biochemical characteristics of soil which are
indicators of soil health. He will explain the science of soil health and steer attendees toward farming methods that build soil health.
