Soil fertility is a function of the wide range of micro-organisms living in the soil, such as earthworms, nematodes, protozoa, fungi, bacteria and arthropods. They decompose organic matter and solubilize minerals from rocks. That influences plant growth, soil structure, the nitrogen cycle and carbon storage. Soil biology is the study of this ecosystem and the ecological functions that it performs. 

Soil moisture supports this microbial activity within the soil, which means that water harvesting and moisture management greatly affect soil fertility. 

In this webinar, Ruben Borge discusses the basic principles and emerging concepts of soil biology relevant to agriculture. He will also detail the relationship between water harvesting, drinking water treatment, and their potential effects on soil life.
