The challenges to cropping systems with regards to maintaining/improving soil health, reducing agriculture impacts on water use/water quality while increasing crop yields are well documented. As the understanding of the interaction of microorganisms with soil, crops improves new products and techniques are being deployed. For long term improvement, farm fields must be considered a year-round ecosystem rather than only focusing on the crop growing season.
