Tune in to the recent Episode 38, “Soil Soldiers: Microbes Fighting for Your Soil Health.”
The episode features Dr. Stacy Zuber, Illinois State Soil Health Specialist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service; Dr. Angela Kent, Professor of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences at University of Illinois; and Terry Davis, farmer from Warren County. The guests discuss the importance of soil microbes working to build soil health, the roles different microbes play, how microbes contribute to the nitrogen cycle, and the soil microbial improvements one farmer has seen from utilizing no-tillage, cover crops, and modified timing of fertilizer applications.
