Soil health pioneer Jon Stika describes in simple terms how you can bring your soil back to its full productive potential by understanding and applying the principles that built your soil in the first place. Understanding how the soil functions is critical to reducing the reliance on expensive inputs to maintain yields. Working with, instead of against, the processes that naturally govern the soil can increase profitability and restore the soil to health. Restoring soil health can proactively solve natural resource issues before regulations are imposed that will merely address the symptoms. This book will lead you through the basic biology and guiding principles that will allow you to assess and restore your soil. It is part of a movement currently underway in agriculture that is working to restore what has been lost. A Soil Owner's Manual: How to Restore and Maintain Soil Health will give you the opportunity to be part of this movement. Restoring soil health is restoring hope in the future of agriculture, from large farm fields and pastures, down to your own vegetable or flower garden.

Must read regardless of Agriculture involvement
I highly recommend this wether you're involved in Agriculture or not. Small scale, large scale; conventional, strip or no tillage; this is a must read. The least we can do as humans is understand what is beneath our feet.

I found it very informative. I am excited about farming but have no prior knowledge of what plants needed for food or amount of water. it was very enlightening to hear all the factors that come into play on a farm.
