Wheat Roots in Soil Health
Watch the discussion with WISH-ROOTS ‘Tuning the wheat root microbiome to improve soil health and optimize rhizosphere nitrogen cycling and availability’. Find out how WISH-ROOTS is improving the soil with wheat root traits. WISH-ROOTS aims will provide advantageous varieties for farmers that support a more sustainable use of land improving soil microbial biodiversity, N cycling, and structure.
Dr. Maria C. Hernandez-Soriano, Postdoctoral researcher at John Innes Centre, Silvio Salvi, Full Professor in Plant Genetics at University of Bologna, Italy, joins Dr. Alberto Acedo, CSO and Cofounder at Biome Makers to discuss the WISH-ROOTS mission and how it aligns with the sustainable development goals linked to food security, sustainability, food production, and climate action.
In this webinar, you can learn more about:
Identification of root traits that can improve soil structure and optimize (N) cycling.
Genetic variation in wheat root morpho-physiological traits on soil health.
Developing genetic tools for breeding.
Data analysis of rhizosphere soil microbiome.
