October 3rd & 4th, 2020. Course in applied agricultural microbiology in Florence, Italy with Deafal

Last 3rd and 4th October 2020 Italian NGO Deafal and Rockinsoils organized the second edition of the applied soil microbiology course. The course combined theory and practice, building up from the basics of soil microbiology giving sets of tools to assess soil condition, humus and biology. The workshop on microscopy was especially interesting as allowed participants to identify different elements that play a role in the soil fertility such as minerals, biodiversity and organic matter in different stages of degradation.

Participants are now able to reproduce several types of soil beneficial microbes and to apply them accordingly to specific farm processes.
