Role of Soil Biology in Improving Soil Quality
Presented by Kristine Nichols, Ph.D., Soil Microbiologist, USDA Agricultural Research Service Soil as the heart of the farming ecosystem is driven by biological activities to increase soil organic matter, which represents a small percentage of the soil by weight, but controls over 90% of the soil functions. This presentation introduces viewers to the concepts of 1) rhizosphere biology, the area immediately surrounding the plant root with the highest concentration of microbiological activity; 2) soil "livestock" consisting of bacteria, fungi, nematodes, protozoa and microarthropods and representing the greatest concentration of biomass anywhere on the planet; 3) glomalin, a biological glue that holds soil together and improves soil aggregation; and 4) building soil biota to improve soil quality, increase nutrient cycling, and long term sustainability using cover crops, no-till, and other sustainable farming practices. The opinions expressed in this video are those of the presenter(s) and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of USDA.

Green Manure Cover Crops Organic Sustainable Soil Fertilizers
Cover crops have been used for years to organically enhance soils and add nutrients. The practice is said to be one of the more sustainable ways to produce crops worldwide. A cover crops or green manures is when you grow plants specifically for the purpose of reducing soil erosion, increasing soil fertility and water retention while assisting in the management of weeds, pests and diseases. [1] [3] Depending on the species used as a cover crop they may provide a variety of the benefits we have just spoken about. In order to get the maximum benefit from the practice cover crops are often tilled into the soil or mowed just before or after the crop has flowered. Common crops used are covered in Eliot Coleman book Four Season Harvest. In this book Mr. Coleman provides great information on common cover crops and how to use them. ***CHECK**** There has been a wealth of research done investigating cover crops. A great paper was published in the journal of Weed Management where researchers from Penn State University discussed and summarized the research that has been completed on cover crops. [2] So now lets go through the results of the scientific investigation of the benefits of cover crops. I am going to investigate them in the following order: Erosion Weed management Organic Material Addition Beneficial Organisms Nitrogen Fixation Disease Management ***Impact on Soil Organisms (allopathic and beneficial) Cost effectiveness and overall environmental impact Erosion Plants like cover crops have been shown in studies from all around the globe to reduce erosion. In order to use cover crops to reduce erosion generally they are planted where traditionally there would be open soil. Their roots stabilize soils while the plant above ground helps dissipate the energy of rain water when falling and flowing over the surface. Slowing the water down helps the soil absorb more water while the stability prevents the water from carrying away the soil particles and nutrients. Weed management An added benefit of using cover crops to help prevent erosion is they grow where traditionally weed species may try to establish. The presence of these established cover crop plants helps prevent weeds by simply out competing them for the space to grow. When cover crop living mulches were compared to herbicide practices a similar weed suppression performance was achieved. These results are significant as the weeds were less likely to adapt to a cover crop weed management strategy as they do to commercial herbicides. Cover crops have been shown to reduce erosion and help keep weeds down. So what benefits do the plants themselves add?

Building Soil Health for Healthy Plants by soil scientist Dr. Elaine Ingham
View the slides from this presentation at permaculturevoices.com/96 A revolution in our understanding of soil has been taking place. “Conventional” agriculture requires ever-increasing inputs and energy into the system to maintain production, while natural systems reduce the disturbances in the system, while increasing production. Historically, soil science ignored or dismissed soil life as important, in large part because the methods used to study organisms in soil were mis-leading, inaccurate and missed about 99% or more of the species present in soil. With the advent of microscope methods and genetic assessment of soil life, we are beginning to unravel the mysteries of the soil. A framework to help growers easily understand the differing specific sets of beneficial organisms required for healthy growth of different types of plants will be presented. Understanding soil life is critical if we want to be sustainable; we need to work with nature, instead of waging war on natural laws as we do in our agricultural systems, to the detriment of people and the planet.

Soil Health Management Systems - Using NRCS Practice Standards
Presented by David Lamm, team leader, National Soil Health and Sustainability Team, East National Technology Support Center. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Soil Health Management Systems (SHMS) are a collection of NRCS conservation practices that focus on maintaining or enhancing soil health by addressing the four soil health planning principles: manage more by disturbing the soil less; diversify with crop diversity; grow living roots throughout the year; and keep the soil covered as much as possible. SHMS are cropping system specific and contain practices that are considered "must-do" or are key practices that achieve the greatest impact on soil health by creating a synergistic effect as a system. Conservation Crop Rotation (328) and Cover Crop (340) are examples for cropland. Practices that address resource concerns that may not occur on all fields are considered "as applicable." Examples include Irrigation Water Management (449) and Filter Strips (390). SHMS also include conservation activities that might not be in an NRCS conservation practice standard but still play a key role in improving soil health. These are known as "best accepted new technology," and examples include controlled traffic patterns and precision application of nutrients and/or pesticides. This webinar will provide background on using NRCS conservation practice standards to develop cropping system specific SHMS at the state and local level. Participate in this webinar to learn about the four soil health planning principles and associated practices that help comprise a Soil Health Management System.
Healthy Soil
NRCS can help farmers and ranchers with a number of conservation practices that build healthy soil. Diverse crop rotations, cover crops, nutrient management and conservation tillage are examples of practices that feed the soil, reduce erosion, improve soil structure, and enhance nutrient cycling and water retention. By using NRCS soil health principles and systems, farmers can sequester more carbon, increase water infiltration, and improve wildlife and pollinator habitat —often with better yields. FOUR SOIL HEALTH PRINCIPLES I. Use plant diversity to increase diversity in the soil. II. Manage soils more by disturbing them less. III. Keep plants growing throughout the year to feed the soil. IV. Keep the soil covered as much as possible. By rotating crops across their elds from season to season, organic farmers add biodiversity and increase resilience in their operations while increasing their soil’s organic matter. Organic no-till systems, such as the roller-crimper, have also helped organic producers reduce the intensity of soil disturbance in annual crop rotations.

Conference Soil for sustainable food production and ecosystem services
The health of the soils is crucial factor for the sustainability of production of the high quality of food. Agricultural sector needs to focus on sustainable production, which is not possible without the protection of agricultural soil and an appropriate use and management of agricultural land. Consequently, there is a need to take up additional measures to protect the soils against the factors that increasingly have an impact on the land soils. The purpose of the conference is to promote discussion among stakeholders on challenges on matter of soil protection for sustainable food production, and possibilities of future EU policy developments.

The Soil Solution - Focus On: Marin Carbon Project
What if the solution to climate change was beneath our feet? In this short video, Sustainable World Media interviews Jeff Creque and John Wick of the Marin Carbon Project (MCP) and Penny Livingston of the Regenerative Design Institute about the potential of grasses and rangeland soils to sequester carbon. After conducting a four year field trial, MCP has discovered that certain land stewardship practices increase carbon sequestration in rangeland soils. Since rangelands are prevalent throughout the world, these soils have a huge potential for storing large amounts of atmospheric CO2. Sustainable World Media's Climate Change Solutions Series explores the link between soil and carbon and documents the forward thinking ranchers, scientists , and farmers who are studying soil’s potential as a biologically based solution to the global climate crisis. Worldwide, most soils are depleted of carbon. The atmosphere contains an excess of carbon in the form of CO2, a climate change causing gas. What if that CO2 could be removed and stored in our carbon-hungry soil through land management practices? In our first film The Soil Solution to Climate Change, we highlighted land stewardship practices that can be used to remove excess atmospheric carbon and put it to beneficial use in soil. Rangeland management is a method of grazing that works with nature, instead of against it. Following Nature’s model of grazing, animals are moved from paddock to paddock where their impact on the land helps to create healthy soil. Many ranchers and scientists are now showing that managing cattle in this way also increases the sequestration of atmospheric CO2. Rangeland management also provides us with nutritionally rich food, cleaner water and a healthier planet for all. Check out our other videos at our Sustainable World YouTube Channel.

Conservation and Sustainable Management of Rangelands
Rangelands cover half the planet, are home to a third of humanity, and support some of our most treasured biodiversity. They are home to between 200 and 500 million pastoralists who herd livestock, provide high-value food and fibre, and who safeguard globally important ecosystem services, including water supply and climate regulation. Pastoralists and their rangeland landscapes are neglected in terms of policy and investment and require a major effort to raise their visibility. This video presentation was prepared for a Special Symposium of the Society for Rangelands Management (February 2017) to support calls for an “International Year on Rangelands and Pastoralism”.

Nicole Masters - Soil & Food Health Conference
Soil & Food Heath Conference On the 28th of January 2017, Women in Agriculture from around Australia and New Zealand came together to present the Soil & Food Health Conference in Albany, Western Australia. A panel of knowledgeable and passionate experts educated and empowered both men and women on the necessity of growing more sustainable and nutritious food. These professionals included horticulturalist Sabrina Hahn and agroecologist Nicole Masters who have witnessed a dramatic decline in soil health, both at a local and international scale. Agricultural practices and retailer demand has transformed the grower industry over the last fifty years - in many cases to the detriment of our food quality. As a society, we understand this is a major issue and created a demand for vitamin & mineral supplements – yet still health issues and diseases are on the global rise. These issues are close to home as West Australian soils are particularly nutrient & mineral deficient. Unfortunately, this means the same for food we eat. This was explored by renowned Author and G.P. Dr Carole Hungerford who has seen the health ramifications of mineral deficiency and discussed long-term preventative measures. Maree Gooch from the Rural Regional Remote (RRR) network talked about how rural women can be the leading change agent in their communities for a healthier and more sustainable future. Stephen Frost, a local farmer and co-founder of Australian Mineral Fertilisers who coordinated the event, shared his own experiences since beginning the journey to remineralise the soil. More about Nicole; Nicole Masters, director at Integrity Soils, is an independent agroecologist, systems thinker and educator. Providing agricultural extension services and consulting throughout Australia, North America and New Zealand since 2003. She is recognized as a knowledgeable and dynamic speaker on the topic of soil health. Nicole is passionate about empowering farmers, growers and consultants to make positive shifts in their operations. She is one of a growing number of people who are facilitating a rapidly expanding world of quality food production and biological economies.
