Description

How does the Soil Foodweb affect plants?
Soil organisms create a living, dynamic system that needs to be understood and managed properly for best plant growth.Plants depend on beneficial soil organisms to protect them from pathogens, to help them obtain nutrients from the soil, to reduce nutrient losses and to breakdown toxic compounds that could inhibit growth.

How does the Foliar Foodweb affect plants?

Foliar organisms create a protective layer on leaf, stem, blossom and fruit surfaces.  This is a dynamic, living system on the aboveground parts of plants that is constantly impacted by rain, wind, heat, sunlight, and pollution. Plants depend on beneficial foliar microorganisms to protect them from pathogens, to improve uptake of foliar-applied nutrients, and to break down pollutants deposited on aboveground plant surfaces.
