Many farmers have reported organic matter increases as much as .25% – .35% per year, and sometimes faster.
Sometimes the argument is made that the science doesn’t support the possibility of these rapid organic matter gains, even though they have been observed on many different farms, in different geographies with varying climates.
It is not the case that science does not support these rapid organic matter increases. It is only that the science which does describe the capacity for this to occur is not widely known.
At the frontiers of agriculture related research are pioneering scientists studying soil, microbe, and plant interactions from a biophysics and biology perspective, rather than from a chemistry perspective.
Some examples of the pioneering research being conducted includes Olivier Husson’s work in understanding redox, Gerald Pollack’s work defining the characteristics and behaviour of the fourth phase of water, known as Exclusion Zone water, which is found inside and around living organisms, James Whites work with rhizophagy, Fritz Albert Popps work with biophotonics, and Phillip Callahan’s work with paramagnetism and plant communication in the electromagnetic spectrum.
Their collective discoveries promise a complete revolution in the mainstream approach to agronomy management. The knowledge they have contributed leads to a completely different perspective on life processes in soils and plants when we are able to connect all the dots they have identified.
And there lies the challenge that Harriet Mella has answered so well in this course. How does our understanding of soil and plant systems change when we bring all these perspectives together into one unified whole? She connects all of these dots, including many aspects you are unlikely to have heard about before.
This course contains a lot of information that will be completely new to most of us, and is still explained in a way that is very easy to understand.
This course is framed around carbon cycling, but it necessarily includes so much more. Harriet describes how plants actually absorb different forms of nutrients, how soil water behaves from an EZ water perspective, how soil aggregates are formed, and how cosmic and lunar rhythms influence crop development, nutrient movement and carbon cycling.
You will learn a more integrated explanation of how the soil, microbe, and plant ecosystem actually works than you can find anywhere else.
