What you need to know about soil microbiology

Soil health is closely linked to soil microbiology. This fact sheet outlines information on a broad group of soil microbes including fungi, bacteria and pseudomonas, and explains how different levels, numbers and ratios of these microbes can impact the overall health of your soil and crops. 

The fact sheet also provides an overview of ways to change your soil microbiology through manipulation of the soil biomass, and shares the results from a case study on soil microbiology testing in Tasmania.

You can read the fact sheet here.
