Soil Ecologist at Miller Soils
Your plant’s success is highly dependent on its environment. The rhizosphere is the dynamic area around the plant’s roots, which is just as important as the area around its leaves and buds. In this session, we will cover plant physiology, basic soil science, microbiology, the soil food web, plant nutrition, and root uptake. These “rootimentary” concepts are relevant for all cultivation methods and growing medias, from hydroponics to native soil.
