In his comments to the farmers, Beachy emphasized the importance of taking care of the soil and feeding all the microbes living in it. “Respect the soil and feed it,” Beachy said. “I’ve always said that I’m a livestock farmer. I feed millions of head of livestock, but I never see them.”
The Plain City corn farmer said that since he started taking care of his soil by balancing the nutrients in it, his worm population has increased, which keeps the soil aerated and ideal for plants taking root. That, combined with the right balance of major and minor nutrients, has improved both the yield and the quality of his crops. “You just have to pay attention to details,” Beachy said."
