Workshop: Towards a more sustainable agriculture through managing the soil microbiome
Location: Radisson Victoria Plaza Hotel, Montevideo, Uruguay
Start 14.11.2019 | 8 am End 16.11.2019 | 1 pm
The international workshop discusses the role of soil microbiomes in agro-ecosystems for soil and plant health and the potential for development of more sustainable farming practices. The workshop would not only allow for discussing the current state of the art and future perspectives, but also serves as a think tank to define research needs, methodological approaches and standards for field trials and sampling strategies and last but not least to initiate joint collaborative projects. Future projects aiming at developing a hypothesis-driven research framework to gain a better mechanistic understanding of the effects of agricultural management practices on soil microbiomes and interrelations in agricultural soils residing in different geographic and climatic zones.
