Join AMI’s international webinar on taking a microbiome-based approach to soil health! This event will centre around a panel of speakers from across the globe, who will share their local insights and advice on soil success stories and lessons learned to facilitate a global knowledge exchange. Led by Professor Brajesh Singh, winner of AMI’s Dorothy Jones award in 2023, this panel of soil microbiology experts will offer a comprehensive exploration into what different areas of the world are doing in terms of a taking soil microbiome approach to soil health, and their experiences and opinions on doing so. The discussion will provide an international learning experience to help explore whether a microbiome-based approach to soils across the globe is possible, desirable and if so, how it can be implemented.  

The webinar will begin with 10-15 minute Keynote from Brajesh which will then lead into '10 minute overviews' of what our panel members are doing in terms of pursuing a microbiome-based approach to soil health. We will then move into a Q&A session with our audience asking questions and sharing regional experiences and challenges related to soil microbiology.
