This article in the NYTimes offers insight into why biologically active soil matters
Robust Compost is a complex community of soil microbes, in a solid transport medium. It looks like compost, but contains thousands of species of bacteria, fungi, amoeba, flagellates, nematodes and micro-arthropods. Robust compost can be used to reseed the Soil Biome in dead dirt, bringing the soil back to life. This complete ecosystem is sometimes referred to as the Soil Food Web.
