Soil in agriculture
Our understanding of soil has grown enormously in recent years. The common view of soil was as a source of physical support and chemical substances (natural and artificial) which act as nutrients.
We now understand it to be much more than this - to be an ecology, in fact, with soil microorganisms which break down the rocky components of soil, release nutrients in the process, as well as interacting directly with the plant's roots.
The soil category on Appropedia focuses on this aspect.
