Bio soils

It is not hard to believe that the avoidance of pesticides is beneficial to:

  • Humans cultivating the soil
  • animals living here,
  • plants growing here and thus
  • all humans as we live on the produce.

However, there are further advantages to “organic soil”:

  • Organic farmers foster the formation of humus. This entails:
  • an improved ability to bind nutrients
  • an improved ability to store water and thus a higher probability to avoid flooding and erosion!

Moreover, organic soil can store much more carbon dioxide!
