Leilani Zimmer Durand: Building Your Microbe Bridge USB/CD
Microbes are essential for bridging the gap between minerals in the soil and available nutrients taken in by plant roots. The soil may be abundant in minerals, but that doesn’t mean your plants can get to those needed nutrients without some help. In this session, Leilani Zimmer Durand will talk about some of the key functions microbes perform in making soil minerals available for plants, and what you as a farmer can do to support the microbial diversity and balance most beneficial for your crops.
