Microbes Important to the Ocean - What About Your Soil?

"

I stumbled onto an article today, Mat of microbes the size of Greece discovered on seafloor.

Here are some of the things I found interesting.

  • microbes, which constitute 50 to 90 percent of the oceans' total biomass,
  • A single liter of seawater, once thought to contain about 100,000 microbes, can actually hold more than one billion microorganisms
  • Despite their small individual size, microbes play a big role in the oceans and the planet overall. Microbes help to turn atmospheric carbon dioxide into usable carbon, completing about 95 percent of all respiration in the Earth's oceans. Even those deep in the seafloor, such as the deep sea  burrowers, "help oxygenate sediments and interact with microbes to cycle nutrients and carbon on the ocean floor," Arbizu said.

Makes you wonder what is going on in your soil. Many of us have experience feed and caring for cattle and pigs, but whens the last time you feed or take care to manage your soil microbes?

Have you ever thought of them at all?
