Can We Overthink Our Soil Biology?
In this podcast, we're joined by an esteemed expert, Andrew McGuire from Washington State University, to debunk some myths and shed light on the truth behind soil biology and its practical implications for farming practices.
Andy will share his insights on how farmers can navigate the maze of information and make informed decisions for sustainable soil health management.
