Classifying microbial amendments in U.S. row crops
Is Version Of
The following instructional module has been designed for training purposes with agronomists and row crop growers. The supporting text of this creative component offers specifics on classifying microbes by nomenclature (taxonomy), environments in which microbes live, and the agronomic impact they have on cropping systems. Because this is an Instructional Module creative component, the information within this text is utilized to support the PowerPoint and handout resources. Looking at methods to classify microorganisms is challenging due to the diverse and complex systems these organisms reside in. There are often no defined lines in which certain microorganisms can be categorized. The objectives of this creative component are three-fold. The first objective is to differentiate microorganisms into taxonomic classifications. The second objective is to identify where different microorganisms live and how they interact with the crop. And the third objective is to educate growers and agronomists on microbial function and the impact microbial amendments can have on row crop agriculture.
