Soil is a living entity. Yellow Agro sees the soil as a living entity, which is a paradigm shift from the classical definition of soil. Soil itself is a living thing; therefore, similar to all other living things, it can be healthy or unhealthy. From this point of view, it is clear that it is within our power to both manage soils to keep them healthy, or to kill them. As soil stewards, when we use nutrients, pesticides and tillage, do we ask ourselves, “is this action going to diminish the health of the soil?” Soil is also a habitat; that is, it provides shelter and food for all of the organisms that live in the soil, such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, arthropods, earthworms and many other forms of life. There is actually greater biodiversityunder the soil surface than above it. The physical structure of the soil provides shelter; organic matter added to, or in the soil provides it with food and energy.
