Culturing beneficial microbiology for farming  0

Presented By: Stacy Reader

Event: ECHO International Agriculture Conference 2016 (2016-11-15)

The goals of this presentation are to exhibit how microorganisms and microbiology benefit ecosystem health and explore in what ways farmers can use microorganisms and microbiology to increase the long-term health of soil, crops, or animals.  The use of microbiology for soil restoration by encouraging microbial breakdown of protein will be explained and demonstrated during the session.  Topics will include comparing Effective Microorganisms (EM) and indigenous microorganisms (IMO), the benefits of fermented amino acid (FAA) sprays and application practices of both IMO and FAA.
