    About This Project

    The global demand for food is rapidly growing, and one way to address the issue is by increasing crop production by improving the natural fertility of soils.

    The loss of microbial biodiversity is a problem for the productivity of soils in agriculture, but the good news is that we can do something: we can protect, and even improve, soil fertility!

    How? Simply by preserving and increasing the soil biodiversity, but in order to do so we really need to understand how microbial communities work.

    Blast off!
