Soil Foodweb

The Soil Foodweb is a service that originated through Oregon State University's Soil Microbial Biomass Service and founded by Dr. Elaine Ingham. The service offers researchers and commercial clients the ability to have soil samples analysed for soil foodweb organisms.

The focus of the Soil Foodweb is to discover; what organisms are present in the soil and on the foliage of your plants, which organisms benefit which types of plants, which organisms harm plants, how can these organisms be managed to grow plants with the least expensive inputs into the system while maintaining soil fertility. The Soil Foodweb program is considered a worldwide leader in its approach to developing a sustainable approach to our food supply.
