Webinar: Regenerative Agriculture and Soil Microbial Carbon Pump (MCP)

July 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDTFREE
In the past decade, there has been a significant breakthrough in our understanding of soil organic matter formation and the carbon cycle. Now we increasingly know that humus actually may not exist in soil, and soil microbes not just are responsible for decomposition, but also contribute directly to soil organic matter formation. This brand new mechanistic understanding has been described as the soil “microbial carbon pump (MCP).”
Does this theory explain why regenerative agriculture builds soil carbon? How can we utilize this conceptual advancement to guide actual practices to improve soil carbon storage? In this webinar, Dr. Yichao Rui will introduce this paradigm shift and discuss how we can harness the power of regenerative agriculture and revitalize the soil “MCP” to effectively regenerate soil carbon.
