Ag input quality control using the soil microbiome

Francisco López and David Olson

Understanding soil biodiversity and nutrient pathways
Francisco López, one of our in-house agronomists, speaks about the importance of soil biodiversity and how to leverage microbial nutrient cycling pathways. We also hosted David Olson, co-owner of Sustainable Growing Solutions, LLC (SGS), an input manufacturer specializing in microbial inoculants and plant nutrition products.
David provided further details on how to use soil microbiome analyses for product quality control and development, and how to identify and quantify the microbial species in products along with their plant-beneficial functional characteristics.
Other topics you can learn more about in this free webinar include:
