Beneficial Soil Organisms

Soil Fumigation = Soil conditions that are conducive to the proliferation of beneficial micro-organisms.

At Douglas Ag, we define SOIL HEALTH as:

Soil conditions which have reduced populations of soil pests

Favor the proliferation of micro-organisms beneficial to crop health

Have optimal soil chemical and physical characteristics

We know that some soil microorganisms, such as pests injure plant health, while others, such as beneficials promote root health.  The problem is that high populations of plant pathogenic organisms are found in many agricultural soils. 

Our growers come to us with “tired soils,” “replant syndrome,” and poor crop health resulting from poor soil health.
