Quantifying Crop Rhizosphere Microbiome Ecology: The Next Frontier in Enhancing the Commercial Utility of Agricultural Microbes


Microorganisms represent the oldest biological forms on the planet and reside in virtually all environments capable of supporting life. These metabolically diverse microscopic organisms are responsible for driving global energy fluxes, including the carbon and nutrient cycles which dramatically affect soil health and nutrient uptake in higher plants, and which support plant growth, health and productivity.
