Soil Food Web: Principles and Practice

This half day workshop will explore the importance of soil and rootzone microbiomes in supporting turf growth. You will gain insight into the dynamic nature of plant-microbe interactions that take place in the rhizosphere and how to manage these processes to optimise turf health and quality. 

Learning Outcomes: 
• Introduction to soil biology 
• Microorganisms and their functions in soil and rootzone ecosystems 
• Balancing fungi: bacteria to alleviate weed pressure 
• Biological cycling of nutrient reserves 
• Function and fate of root exudates 
• Soil organic carbon dynamics 

Presented by: Joel Williams, Plant and Soil Health Educator, Integrated Soils
