He talks about the first step in bringing life back to his Canola field in this video. Stay tuned as we follow Riley's effort to rebuild soil biology this season.

Studies show that as much as 60% of your phosphorous goes un-utilized. Can you afford to let that much of your purchase go unused? Brian and Steve from Agricen join Iowa producer Kelly Garrett to discuss the science and the financial return.
