Optimizing Nutrient Cycling for Nutrient Dense Crops

Download Transcript

Nutrient cycling is the transfer of nutrients from the atmosphere, from additives, or from the soil into plants and back again. This cycle–and nutrient availability–has a big impact on nutrient densities in crops at harvest.

Listen in as Joy Youwakim, a soil scientist currently working as a farmer and an agroecology scientist at Biome Makers, sheds light on the pivotal role of soil testing, microbes, and management practices in nutrient cycling and, ultimately, the production of more nutritious crops.
