When looking at your field, what do you see? Would you be able to tell me exactly what’s going on – if there’s a problem, if things are going great? If you find yourself frustrated trying to pinpoint certain problems or successes, no worries.
Dr. Aileen Fatemeh Mastouri, Director of Soil Microbiology at Stoller Enterprises, will let you in on a little secret at our upcoming field day. She is currently researching plant interaction with beneficial and pathogenic microbes, and how these interactions affect plant health, response to environment, and productivity.
By evaluating your natural soil microbiome, Mastouri believes you can truly learn what’s going on in your soil. She’ll discuss the role microbes play and the impact chemical products have on your soils. Her publications in this area have received widespread attention and are cited over 500 times by other scientists. She’s also a visiting scholar at Texas A&M University so this is one session you won’t want to miss.
Our Biological Farming Seminar & Field Day is scheduled from 9:00am-5:00pm Thursday, September 8 at Wise Guys Bar & Grill, 2205 N. Main St., Princeton, Illinois.
