A handful of healthy soil has more individual life forms than there are people on the planet today. Healthy soil has at least 7 types of life, with over 10,000 species, some of which are harmful, but most of which are beneficial. What keeps them in balance? The complete ecosystem, sometimes referred to as the Soil Food Web. Beneficial nematodes are a key component, as they consume bacteria or fungal pathogens.
