About the Event
David is a molecular biologist conducting research on the interdependence between plans and soil microbes. Optimization of these plant-microbe interactions promotes soil fertility, improved growth of crops, increase water use efficiency, soil microbial carbon use efficiency and carbon storage capabilities.
He works with growers, and researchers from: Arizona, Texas, California, Colorado, and governmental and NGOs throughout the country to explore paths to improve food security, reduce atmospheric CO2 concentrations, and increase farm and rangeland productivity and profitability through the development of beneficial soil microbial communities.
Rebuilding a soil’s microbial community population ,structure, diversity and biological function will provide a robust and practical mechanism to begin reducing atmospheric CO2 within a regen ag system.
