Recently Recorded Webinar - Soil Ecology & the Microscope: A Closer Look at Soil Health

Recorded November 3, 2016 - Ben Samuelson discusses the soil foodweb and how microbial interactions in soil reduce farm inputs.  This webinar is a primer on the soil microbiome. We will follow the flow of energy and nutrients through the soil foodweb to understand the broad interactions between the organism groups in soil, especially the microscopic ones: bacteria, fungi, nematodes and protozoa. See these under the microscope, and become inspired to make them your allies in management.

Ben Samuelson's mission is to show the importance of soil microbes in truly regenerative agricultural systems and promote biological management that builds soil, protects water supply, and produces nutrient dense foods.  Check out his website www.soilbiology.tech*

 If you have questions, feel free to contact Gary Lesoing at glesoing2@unl.edu or (402) 274-4755.  More information is available on the SARE Webinar page.
