The Importance of Soil Biology

June 1, 2016

In every square inch of soil there are billions of active microbes that make up a complex community of organisms living in and around the roots of plants. The soil food web is a 

series of conversions of energy and nutrients between microbes. When organisms 

decompose complex materials, or consume other organisms, the nutrients are converted and are made available to plants and to other soil organisms.

 

Mycorrhizae acts as an extension of the roots of plants. Increasing the amount of available nutrients and moisture the roots would not normally have. Forming a symbiotic relationship, Mykos mycorrhizae stretches far into your soil breaking down nutrients and exchanging sugars from the plant for nutrients that other beneficial microbes have to offer. Mycorrhizal fungi is a critical component of healthy soil biology and comprises about 80% of all the microbial organisms that support plant growth and health.

 

At Xtreme Gardening, we pioneered the development of microbes that are easy to use, economical, and highly effective – from large scale agricultural applications to our small packages for the home gardener – Xtreme Gardening has every garden covered.
