UK Plant Microbiome Initiative

UK Plant Microbiome Initiative

The Plant Microbiome is the microbial communities of the plant, soils, and fauna and can be considered as an essential component of the functional ‘phytobiome’

The Initiative seeks to exploit the potential of the plant microbiome and to place the UK at the forefront of global research, facilitation, and policy in this area. The Initiative will facilitate new collaborative projects among stakeholders, drawing on the leading scientific expertise, cutting-edge facilities, and the infrastructure required to unlock the plant microbiome’s potential. Focus will be on enhancing sustainable food production by providing microbial solutions to pressures in agricultural production resulting from climate change, decreasing resources, and increasing human population.- More details to follow shortly.
