Bottom-Line Benefits of Building Resilience – Nicole Masters

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

New Zealand agroecologist Nicole Masters gives us an illuminating look at the interrelationships among soil microbes, structure, plant health and resilience.

In this dynamic keynote, Nicole explains how plants and microbes use a complex set of chemical and electrical signals to communicate and exchange valuable carbon, nutrients and water.

Hear how a robust soil structure and a diverse community of soil microbes can reduce temperature fluctuations and even reduce frost damage. Learn how, just like our own gut microbiome, plants rely on the soil microbiome for health, disease prevention and nutrient density.

By the end, you will feel inspired and more connected to that most vital resource: a vibrant, thriving soil ecosystem.
