Managing Mycorrhizal Fungi in Your Soil
Mycorrhizal fungi are often viewed as star players in sustainable agriculture, and for good reason. When they form intimate associations with crop roots, they can help increase nutrient uptake, help crops deal with water stress and possibly reduce soil borne disease pressure. In this workshop, experts will share research and experiences about when and to what extent these benefits are seen in California vegetable systems. Come learn multiple ways management could support (or not!) mycorrhizal fungi, from inoculation to soil health practices like cover cropping and reducing tillage.
