“The thing that we have to understand is that every organism is dependent upon its environment and as we change the environment, we change which organisms will survive or perish. As we change the nutrition in the soil, and the dynamics of what’s going on in the soil, we can set up the appropriate environment for the beneficial micro-organisms to survive, not the disease organisms. They do not like the same environment, particularly as it deals with oxygen. It’s a question of an anaerobic [oxygen-deprived] environment versus an aerobic [oxygen-rich] environment. The beneficial organisms are dominantly aerobic organisms. Our pathogens, or harmful organisms, are dominantly anaerobic-loving”.
“The environments that conventional agriculture has set up are predominantly anaerobic environments, so they’re most conducive to disease organisms.”
