Q3. Aerobic vs anaerobic, organisms, good vs bad, ratios? Relationships?

Answer: Generally aerobic microbes are what you are looking for in the soil. Some important bacteria are anaerobic and photo synthetic and form part of the soil food web. Anaerobic conditions can produce unwanted toxins which negatively impact on good soil biology. It is better to have good air flow through good soil structure which will stimulate the fungal population that will benefit plant growth and soil health.
