Using cover crops to manage mycorrhizal fungi for veg crops
Register for an upcoming webinar on Thursday 9 July from 12 noon to 1pm (AEST), to learn the potential role cover crops play in managing mycorrhizal fungi in vegetable production.
Hosted by Applied Horticultural Research, the webinar will hear from Dr Kelvin Montagu who will discuss:
