57: MicroBIOMETER: The Future of Soil Health Monitoring and Sustainable Agriculture with Laura Decker

View descriptionShare

The importance of frequent and non-destructive soil analysis using microBIOMETER, as soil microbes have short, exciting lives and the microbial population changes rapidly. Testing soil at the point of extraction provides a bigger picture of what's present, as opposed to testing dried and reconstituted soil which yields a different mix. The lack of knowledge on the cycle of microbes beneath the Earth further highlights the need for frequent soil testing. MicroBIOMETER's rapid, easy, and cheap testing allows for more frequent analysis of soil biology, enabling experimentation and a better understanding of crop life cycles and practices.
