Soil health science challenges ancient agriculture concepts Safety

Jon Stika and researchers at the North Dakota State University's Dickinson Research Extension Center have been trying to clear misconceptions about the soil for many years now as they make new discoveries and introduce new paradigms to the world of soil health. Soil is an "agri-biome" which refers to an interdependent environment of organisms serving a greater whole. An example Stika gave is the "human biome" which is the description given to all of the microbial organisms that live within and upon human beings. Stika anecdotally revealed that he's been practicing no-till in his personal garden for 15 years now. Recently he sought to plant some sweet corn, and after he sent his soil off to get tested, the results came back and told him he didn't need to add any additional fertilizer.
