Microbial Physiology Regulates How Much Crop Residue Becomes Soil Organic Matter – Stuart Grandy

Dr. Stuart Grandy, Associate Professor at the University of New Hampshire, Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, pressed the audience to consider how the science behind soil health should progress and innovate.

Dr. Grandy described the process of how microbial cells promote biomass creation over time. He shared insight on how specific microbes are being studied and how differences in inputs figure into biomass creation. Dr. Grandy also explained results of cover crop studies.
