Redox Potential (Eh) and pH as indicators of Soil, Plant and Animal Health and Quality

An in-depth and enlightening course on (Eh) and pH as indicators of soil, plant, and animal health and quality.

Regen Ag Academy · November 12, 2020

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.

You can find an introductory podcast interview with Olivier here, and a foundational paper linked below.

About Instructor

Regen Ag Academy

Our mission is to communicate regenerative agriculture knowledge to growers and agronomists. We believe the next revolution in agriculture is a science-based agronomy revolution. Emerging science provides the foundation for developing regenerative agriculture ecosystems that produce more nutritious food per acre than present crop production systems, while also rebuilding soil health. Each of us can only attend so many live conferences in person. These courses allow you to learn the deep knowledge of an in-depth course at your convenience without the travel and time commitment. These courses detail how to develop and implement regenerative agriculture systems that promote plant and soil health and lead to economic sustainability.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Outstanding and enlightening
    A 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!

  • Complex subject sufficiently simplified
    Complex subject sufficiently simplified to peak my interest. Dr. Husson is brilliant with a wealth of practical knowledge and experience. Where do we go from here to begin taking advantage of this information? Thanks again to John Kempf for bringing us quality experts and shepherding us through.

  • Connecting all the dots.
    A wealth of information, connecting all the chemical-electrical(energy) dots and explaining very well why it is better to convert as quickly as possible, combining all good practices and biotic inputs at once, to allow your plant to follow the ‘natural defense growth path’.

  • 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
  • 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.

  • This should be required. for all growers
    Dr. Husson explains a complex and relatively unknown subject extremely well. This should be required. for all growers.

  • Opened up a whole new field/frame
    I’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.

  • A brilliant dive into the world of redox
    A brilliant dive into the world of redox. I highly recommend it to get even more out of John’s webinars as he’s starting to reference and build more on the foundations laid within this course.
