Soil biology: under the microscope
 
There is recognition amongst farmers and scientists alike that soil biology is an important component in healthy soil. But selecting what to measure is confounding and analysing what the data really mean can be even more so. The presentation will put under the microscope some of the key methods for measuring ‘who’s there’ and ‘what are they doing.’ The methodologies are being applied to Soil CRC field trials to help us understand changes to soil biological properties and how these may more broadly benefit soil health.
 
Presented by Soil CRC Program Leader Dr Lukas Van Zwieten from NSW Department of Primary Industries.
 
Dr Lukas Van Zwieten leads Program 4.

Date: Tuesday 8 December 12pm – 1pm AEDT
