The effect of BSF frass on soil food web as means to improve soil health and plant resilience.

After a lot of time spent on looking for MA project to join to, I found Ours:

Our project combines theoretic models and field work to deal with a fundamental challenge at the basis of the food production chain- how to produce enough food to sustain a growing world population using only sustainable and un-harmful products:

We study how soil amendment supports plant’s soil biota and helps the whole system recover from a fatigue caused by years of conventional mal-handling.

I feel as though I am where I wished for: in a new and growing wholistic and inter-disciplinary field of research, as a part of a team from many different  fields of research that join forces to meet up with that said challenge.
