In ‘Soil Amendments, Soil Microbiome, and Soil Health on Vegetable Farms’ Dan Perkins joins Dr. Lori Hoagland from Purdue Horticulture to discuss how microbes in the soil contribute to healthy crops and how management practices can influence them.

And check out Episode 11 that highlights David Brandt’s reflections on  50 years soil pursuing soil health. Brandt farms over 1000 acres in central Ohio, including some vegetable production.
