This week, I cover the types of data and figures that we generate for growers, what kind of potential pathogens have been seen in a grower’s hydroponic system, and how similar are the microbiomes of samples from four growers. You will get to see a little bit of data from the Healthy Hydroponics!
One way we are helping growers understand the scientific terminology commonly used when discussing microbiome is by creating a glossary of terms.
With the growth of the world population, climate change, global crises, and access to affordable clean energy are challenges to long term food security. We need to have sustainable food systems in place to output fresh, safe, sufficient, and accessible foods on all scales, from local to global. Food security is a societal priority that we must focus on.
