In this video, we’re going to talk about some interesting research that proves that soils are not depleted of nutrients—instead, there’s something else interesting going on.

The best predictor for plant growth isn’t the minerals and other nutrients in the soil; the best predictor for plant growth is the fungal-bacteria ratio.

As we use pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides on farmland, the soil becomes depleted of fungus. When this happens, the bacteria grow out of control. This leaves the crops with hardly any fungus and way too much bacteria.

Fungus plays an important role in breaking down minerals. Without fungus, plants aren’t able to absorb the mineral in the soil. This is why many farmers have to add nutrients to their soil.

You need a 1:1 ratio of bacteria and fungus to make nutrients soluble for plants.

How do low levels of nutrients in plants affect our bodies? We need both nutrients and microorganisms in our bodies to break down and utilize nutrients. Without these important friendly fungi and bacteria, you can develop a nutrient deficiency.
