Title: Harnessing the Power of Soil Microbes for More Sustainable Farming

Abstract

How will the farms of the future feed a projected 9.8 billion people by 2050? Our “smart farm” project, in collaboration with the University of Arkansas, marries microbiology and machine learning in an effort to reduce the need for chemical fertilizers and enhance soil carbon uptake, thus improving the long-term viability of the land while increasing crop yields.
