    With the increasing use of precision ag tools and increased machinery efficiencies, the whole dynamic of hiring farm employees has changed as well. Being a farm worker these days means being a technician, which in many cases requires a multi-disciplinary skillset.

Our ancestors before the advent of Processed Foods and Sodas were much healthier and had a probability of longevity of life. The answer is that they were not munching on processed foods, high sodium and low calcium diet, sugary drinks and unhealthy fast food... Now keeping in view this guideline, what are we eating? Our breakfasts are comprised of high sugar cereals, our lunch is loaded with sodium, saturated fats and fast foods and our dinners are no good...

    If you think of the soil as a digester similar to a gut, managing pH to be slightly acidic keeps it operating effectively to assimilate nutrients that are already present or being added in the form of manures and fertilizers. I often explain it as if you are taking advantage of what is inherently present and using what might be added as efficiently as possible. A healthy gut or soil, one being slightly acidic where as good bacteria and fungi flourish does that. pH is the linchpin to creating that environment conducive for healthy flora to thrive.
    Often I think we don't understand all the ways pH is useful or even what drives it. It can also be a hard concept to grasp. I liken it to an abacus. You're using calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium, etc. balancing pH -hydrogen, to encourage a healthy system. And as you mentioned, grow a better crop with less or no fertilizer.
