Steering soil microbiomes for better crop quality: the holy grail to improve human health?

A step towards sustainable farming practices that prioritize not only yields but also the nutritional value and health benefits of our food.

At IBL, we are part of this large consortium funded by NWO that include multiple partners, and we focus on the impact of soil microbes on plant nutritional quality.

Envisioned impacts

  1. Healthier food supply

  2. Concrete recommendations on how to modify agricultural practices to generate healthier soils and crops; importantly, these changes will also indirectly enhance water quality, climate migration, and biodiversity

  3. Change in the framing of the agricultural value chain

  4. Integration of different components in the food system
