Regenerative Agriculture Initiative Seminar Series Presents:


Dr. David Johnson

Dr. David Johnson, Molecular Biologist
New Mexico State University, and Adjunct Faculty, CSU, Chico

Regenerating the Diversity of Life in Soils: Hope for Farming, Ranching and Climate!

Dr. David Johnson is a Molecular Biologist conducting research for the Institute for Sustainable Agricultural Research at New Mexico State University. His research, in soil microbial community structure and function, has opened a window for viewing the interdependence between plants and soil microbes. Optimization of these plant-microbes associations promotes restoration of soil fertility, improved growth of crops, increased plant water use efficiencies, and soil microbial carbon-use efficiencies. These benefits provide a path to significantly reduce greenhouse gases while promoting market development of a new and profitable agricultural commodity (soil carbon) for growers within a regenerative agricultural system.

Hosted by the Regenerative Agriculture Initiative at CSU, Chico and our supporting partners.
