Eh, the name for redox potential, is a measurement of the availability of electrons, whereas pH is a measurement of the availability of protons. In order to gain a full picture of the soil’s capacity to supply nutrients, we need to assess both pH and redox potential at the same time. Eh can have as significant an impact on nutrient availability as pH.
This course shares foundational knowledge of agricultural biophysics that sets the stage for the next agricultural revolution.
The information that Olivier discusses is so important and so valuable, it promises to completely reset how we think about soil health and plant nutrition.
Imagine being able to identify the groups of diseases or insects your crops might be susceptible to, well before they are present.
Imagine knowing exactly how to manage nitrogen and nutrition applications to prevent possible infections from occurring.
Both of these and more are possible when we understand redox, and the ways different products and management practices influence soil redox poising and balance.
The future of agronomy will not be based on chemistry but on biophysics and biology, particularly as they relate to redox management.
Olivier has been able to describe the Eh and pH parameters that are needed for pathogenic fungi, bacteria, and viruses to manifest in a plant and cause disease.
This course includes 6 video lessons and takes an estimated 5 hours to complete.

Wonderful. Immensely informative!Wonderful. Immensely informative and an absolute joy to participate in. The course helped to expand and strengthen the base and foundation of my understanding of soil health and deepened my capacity for understanding what takes place in rhizospheres in relation to mineral uptake and photosynthetic energy outputs. I am very grateful for this being made available.Joseph Gyovai
So powerful and mind-blowing.So powerful and mind-blowing. It’s like sitting in front of novel scientific change, can’t express my gratitude enough.Eric Benmeir
Holistic and comprehensiveThis course is at once so basic and fundamental, and yet so holistic and comprehensive, it will take time to process. It has connected many dots in my mind, and beautifully outlines how all of the processes we tend to silo in science are one united philosophy of marvelous intelligence!Ken Van Driesten
Soil health is the “hot topic”I gained good knowledge as to how pH and Redox potential can be used to monitor crops. Soil health is the “hot topic” and there is many functions, conditions, and variables that make soil health. This course will take you outside the box of conventional thinking and head you in the right direction.David Widman
This is truly paradigm shifting informatI think that probably no where else can be found synthesized information available on the topic of Eh and Ph which so extensively and elaborately describes the profound implications of understanding and utilizing these two crucial guiding forces to influence the health of soil, plant and animal health. to such a high degree. This is truly paradigm shifting information at the cutting edge.Freddie Williams
Outstanding and enlighteningA must see for anyone interested in Regenerative Agriculture. An outstanding and enlightening intro to soil health and Biology. Well presented and timely for state-of-the-art Regenerative Agriculture!Kenneth Ward
Well presented and fascinating!Content was obviously very well presented and fascinating. I enjoyed having experienced agronomists and specialists comment and ask technical questions. This added another interesting dimension.Dimitri Tsitos
Opened up a whole new field/frameI’d never heard of Redox Potential (Eh) before, so this course was revelatory! It was fantastic to hear about it and all the implications/ impacts it has from someone who is clearly a (the?) leader in this area. I found the subject is pretty technical, so you need to pay attention, you can’t just listen in the background as I tried to do initially.Peter Langlands
I thoroughly enjoyed this processI thoroughly enjoyed this process, and have gained some useful insights into observations I have puzzled over for many years. Thinking about agricultural systems by conceptualizing local electrical energy gradients has helped me bring together many disparate snippets of knowledge and observations into a cohesive mental framework. Thanks for offering this courseSteve Burgess
I found this seminar exquisite.The intuitive discussion linking redox and pH further explains some of the nuances in the soil and ourselves. Understanding that pests and disease require specific environments to thrive guides the grower toward beneficial practices. Plant nutrition, and now soil redox and pH, can be tweaked to prevent plant disease and pest attack by increasing plant health.Nigel Palmer
