Description/Notes: 

Join to learn the impacts of shifts in soil health for water use efficiency and resilience to both abiotic and biotic stresses in California tomato production systems. There is growing interest to develop more targeted and relevant soil health indicator for target environments. However, ecosystem services provided by soils are seldom part of assessment framework and the potential of healthy soils to build stress resilience remains unclear. This webinar will share results from ongoing research project which aim at quantifying the potential of soil health to mitigate both abiotic (drought) and biotic stresses (insect pests) and discuss some of the underlying drivers and mechanisms.
