Why don’t chemical fertilizers improve the soil?

Category: How do Biofeed products improve the soil?

Soil is a complex system of microbial functions that involves the activity of bacteria, fungi, yeasts, molds, actinomycetes, protozoa, nematodes, microarthropods, algae, and a variety of higher life forms. These live synergistically to process the complex matters that enter the soil and ultimately convert environmental refuse into nutritional compounds that are converted into efficient plant nutrients or long chain components that aid soil structure. A hand full of healthy soil contains more microbes than there are people on the earth. Scientific research reports that just one teaspoon may contain up to 600,000,000 individual bacteria, 60,000 meters of fungal hyphae, 500,000 microarthropods, 500,000 beneficial nematodes, 100,000 protozoa, 100,000 yeasts. Soil is truly a living system. Chemical nutrient sources alone do not provide the complex biostimulation or the organic energy components required to support the soils diverse microbial populations.
