Text: 'You have a million years worth of nutrients in sand, silt and clay ... As long as you have biology.'
From 1 - 1 : Ingham Common Ground 2012 Dr. Elaine Ingham at 16:56 "You have a million years worth of nutrients in sand, silt and clay that is already present in your soils there is no need to add more. As long as you have biology to take it from that mineral pool and convert it into a plant available pool."

Text: 'Collect green material for bacteria and brown for fungi'
From Dr. Elaine Ingham Live Teleseminar Q and A Dr. Elaine Ingham at 53.05 "So your high nitrogen component, you want your green component anything that's green anything that you mowed that you collect while it was still green there you go, good green component. And then you want the woody component anything that was standing dead or once you cut down a tree or a bush and that woody material ages a little bit chip it up. So saw dust, wood chips, paper, cardboard products they are all good fungal foods."

Text: 'Turn the compost the good microbes need air and moisture (50%)'
From 1 - 1 : Ingham Common Ground 2012 Dr. Elaine Ingham at 26.35 "Because it's only under anaerobic conditions that the disease causing fungi disease causing bacterial, the pest survive, out compete the good guys and of course attack and consume your root systems."
And from 2 - 5 : Ingham Common Ground 2012 Dr. Elaine Ingham at 11:40 "...this is not up to moisture level, so we need this about 50%."

Text: 'Compost that is a chocolate bar color is ready '
From Elaine Ingham December 2011 in Hawai'i
Dr. Elaine Ingham at 1.39:03 "How do you know you have good humus, well your color chart exist in the grocery store. Go the the grocery store to the chocolate bar counter and buy a chocolate bar that is at least 70% coco and that is the color of humic acid. If you got good compost that is the color of that compost."

Text: 'The good bacteria/fungi form a castle wall around the roots'
From Elaine Ingham December 2011 in Hawai'i
Dr. Elaine Ingham at 12:32 "What else do those bacteria and fungi do for you. They are going to compete with inhibit and consume disease causing organisms pest that might attack your root system. That castle wall that were growing around that root system is going to protect your plants from fungal diseases, bacterial diseases, nematodes all of those problem organisms protecting that root system."

Text: 'Bacteria/fungi control the pH and plants control the bacteria/fungi'
From 3 - 1 : Ingham Common Ground 2012 Dr. Elaine Ingham at 54:53 "So what really controls the pH in your soil? It's the life in your soil. Who controls whether it's going to bacteria or fungal dominated? Your plant because of the exudates it puts out."

Text: 'The underground mycorrhizal fungal network shares the nutrients'
From 3 - 1 : Ingham Common Ground 2012 Dr. Elaine Ingham at 18:10 "So everything in a forest, everything in an agricultural field except for brassicas, mustards, cole and kale crops they are non-mycorrhizal it's harmful for them to become mycorrhizal. but all of our other crops need to be connected below ground with these mycorrhizal fungi. When you become mycorrhizal you don't need as big a root system"

Text: 'Plants feed bacteria/fungi, predators eat those microbes, then nutrients become available'
From Life in Natural Agriculture Soil, Part 2
How does your plant make sure that this nutrient-cycling system is rapidly providing all the nutrients that the plant needs? When your plant needs lots and lots of nutrients, it puts out lots and lots of ‘cakes and cookies’ through its root exudates so bacteria and fungi grow rapidly and take up all available nutrients from soil water, organic matter, soil particles and rocks. Beneficial predators are attracted into the root system, which then eat the bacteria and fungi and release plant available nutrients right there at the root surface.
