The soil is a living thing. When a field is completely under water for a period of time and deprived of oxygen, that living thing tends to die. How do you rebuild that soil biology fast and effectively? Riley Anderson, an XtremeAg Affiliate in Manitoba, Canada, is working with AgXplore to restore biology to a field that was under water. 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.
