I was really excited to get this interview (thanks, Steve Larson for the introduction!), and get Dr. Ingham to go down a few roads I had yet to hear her really elaborate on. Her thoughts on KNF and bokashi, etc., really put some stuff into perspective for me in terms of how soil and human biology differ. And the perrneial cover crop stuff—really curious about that. Anyway, let me know your thoughts!

Looks like i don't need to bother learning about KNF anymore? Funny how knowledgeable folks can state the exact opposite of the same topic with full confidence and authority (even arrogance in some cases). Referring to Elaine's opinion on anaerobics here.

I enjoyed it and found the opinion on KNF very interesting. I think it is important not to throw the baby out with the bath water here. I've seen some pretty fantastic results at other farms that use KNF so I think there is something to it, however, I also think there is certainly something to be said about what she said regarding KNF.

I don't know much about KNF & would like to know more. What is her stance regarding it? What are the best introductory sources of info regarding it?

My favorite takeaway is her comment regarding putting the soil under the microscope and seeing what's in it.

Chris Trump (no relation) has done a lot of videos on KNF that are really in depth. Worth checking out on youtube—great entry into the practice.

i have been doing knf for about 15 years, sounds like she doesnt quite get whats going on. not that her ACT knowledge isnt good, but knf and ACT are two different approaches to soil biology. good podcast listen though.
