The Importance of Soil Biology

July 1, 2016

In every square inch of soil there are billions of active microbes that make up a complex community of organisms living in and around the roots of plants. The soil food web is a series of conversions of energy and nutrients between microbes. When organisms decompose complex materials, or consume other organisms, the nutrients are converted and are made available to plants and to other soil organisms.


Mycorrhizae acts as an extension of the roots of plants. Increasing the amount of available nutrients and moisture the roots would not normally have. Forming a symbiotic relationship, Mykos mycorrhizae stretches far into your soil breaking down nutrients and exchanging sugars from the plant for nutrients that other beneficial microbes have to offer. Mycorrhizal fungi is a critical component of healthy soil biology and comprises about 80% of all the microbial organisms that support plant growth and health.


In every bag of Old Truck Organics, there is at least 85,000 mycorrhizal microbes ready to spring into action. Experience new levels of plant production as you grow better tasting and smelling fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers!
