Dr. Elaine Ingham discusses the foundations of plant productivity. Beginning with a definition of soil based on its ability to support increasingly productive plant life, she outlines the factors that influence the growth and health of plants in natural ecosystems. She then explains how the many challenges in agriculture and other human-managed systems can be made simpler and less expensive to manage when these factors are taken into account.
