Soil Microbes and Bio Activities

Soil Microbes and Bio Activities

Soil is comprised of particles of inorganic and organic material and water. The particles in the soil bind to elements and nutrients like phosphorus, which is an important nutrient for plant growth (see left). When microorganisms are present in the soil, through various mechanisms they are able to free phosphorus from its bound state to the particles and enable plants to use the phosphorus (see right).
