371 Linking Soil Macrofaunal and Microbial Communities with Crop Dynamics Including Diseases

Oral Session
SSSA Division: Soil Biology & Biochemistry
This session will discuss research on rhizospheric organisms (nematodes, insects, microbes) in the context of plant interactions including disease, systemic induced crop resistance and soil microbial suppression and/or interactions with plant pathogens, pests and beneficial microbial taxa that have soil-based life stages.
