Fungi and the Future of Farming – 2 of 4 Webinars
April 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm MDT
We’re going to take a deep dive into mycorrhizal fungi because they are a perfect example of how a better future for agriculture can be realized through plant and microbial relationships. Due to beneficial interactions with plants, mycorrhizal fungi can improve yields, crop health, and soil food web resilience.
Unfortunately, industrial farming practices, such as tillage and over-fertilization, disrupt numerous soil functions, diminishing the abundance and diversity of mycorrhizal fungi in the majority of cultivated soils. So, we need to understand how to set the stage for regeneration of plant-mycorrhizal symbiotic partnerships to rebuild soil health.
