by Alyssa Hanofee and Levi Johnson
4M ago
Matt is the Chief Soil Scientist at Syngenta Group, and leads the company’s global efforts to develop products and services that enhance soil health. He is a soil ecologist who studies how microbes drive nutrient cycling, soil formation and decomposition, and affect crop health and productivity. His research showed that microbes adapt to changing environments in ways that affect not only ecosystem functioning, but global carbon cycles. He later shifted his research to elucidate novel mechanisms by which plants control the assembly of the microbiome in their rooting zone, and has shown how this ..read more
