Soil Organic Matter

Soil degradation is a global problem. Intensive, chemical-based conventional agriculture focuses on aboveground biomass production and yield and overlooks belowground plant carbon input and plant-soil-microbe associations, leading to declined soil organic matter levels. In this webinar, Dr. Yichao Rui will explain how regenerative agricultural practices such as judicious use of fertilizers, incorporation of legumes, and adaptive grazing can increase SOM levels by enhancing plant surplus carbon. Fine-tuning of agricultural practices may provide an opportunity to facilitate SOM regeneration while optimizing long-term crop yields.
