The Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre (PARC) celebrates 100 years of science with a series of free presentations.
Despite being invisible to the naked eye, microorganisms are extremely important in agriculture. A huge diversity of them play a role in sustaining soil health: they promote plant growth, protect plants from environmental stresses, and inhibit plant and soil pathogens. When harnessed, some microorganisms can improve agricultural productivity, while others can compromise the safety of our food.
This event features the following speakers:
• Pascal Delaquis, Research Scientist, PARC
• Louise Nelson, Professor, Biology Faculty, University of British Columbia Okanagan
