Soil Biology for Crop Nutrition and Reduced Pathogen Outbreaks
Can a thriving soil food web reduce pathogen outbreaks and improve soil fertility? Yes! Join Dr. Elaine Ingham, Dr. Mary Cole and Graham Lancaster to learn how.
This powerhouse panel brings extensive knowledge and experience in soil biology and soil chemistry. They’ll be answering questions from the live audience. So please come prepared with your questions!
This webinar is an extension of the Soil Regen Summit 2022, so be sure to check out the summit presentations by our panelists here: soilregensummit.com. The speaker presentations will also be released on our YouTube channel over the next weeks. Subscribe to get notified of all our new video content! Watch Dr. Cole's SRS22 presentation here.
Dr. Mary Cole is a well-known academic, plant pathologist, and soil microbiologist. She is the Director & Principal Scientist of www.agpath.com.au.
Graham Lancaster is the founding director of the Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) at Southern Cross University, Lismore, Northern New South Wales, Australia, and now the senior manager of commercial and research services. EAL has been supporting sustainable farming for over 30 years and promoting all forms of soil management using the principles of biological, organic, and regenerative farming.
Dr. Elaine Ingham has advanced our knowledge about the soil food web for over 4 decades. Widely recognized as the world’s foremost soil biologist, she’s passionate about empowering ordinary people to bring the soils in their communities back to life.
Our host, Dr. Adrienne Godschalx studied chemical ecology at Portland State University and conducted her PhD research on nitrogen-fixing rhizobia. She pursued her research further as a postdoc at the University of Neuchâtel in Switzerland. When Adrienne started working as a Mentor for the Soil Food Web School, she was bewildered by the potency of the soil food web in plant health and plant-insect interactions. Adrienne is thrilled to have a tangible way to engage in symbiosis with the beautiful wild world.
