The World Under Our Feet: Biological Soil Health in Vegetable Production

February 29, 2024 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Virtual Via Zoom

Contact: Christopher Galbraith

Organic matter plays a critical role in soil health. Cycling of organic matter and plant nutrients is mediated through complex food webs in the soil habitat. These interactions are characterized by an astonishing level of biodiversity that includes soil organisms such as bacteria, fungi, nematodes, arthropods, and earthworms. Learn about how the interactions between these lifeforms influences soil biological health and in turn successful crop production.

CCA Credits are offered for this session. This session is eligible for 1 RUP credit (1B or Priv CORE).
