Rhizoterra's Current Projects

Cover crops, field studies, rhizoterra projects, research projects, nutrient dense forage, soil health, grazing, soil health primers, canola,

Rhizoterra's current projects are all based on building productive healthy soil.  Listed below are our current projects that focus on grazing, soil health primers, crops, biologicals, and diagnostics. All these projects are researched based that span multiple years. This allows us to track, compile actuate data, find trends that include variance of weather patterns from year to year. By looking at all of these factors we can make informed decisions.

 

Grazing

Michigan State University in collaboration with Dr. Jason Rowntree and team: Intensive livestock grazing for soil health.

Park Dairy- Australia: Soil health building and forage quality for dairy.

Soil Health Primers

Cover Crops: Mixes and forages for integrated livestock grazing

Companions: Mixes, IPM (insect pest management) attracting beneficial insects.

Crops

Winter Canola: Variety testing and technical support for farmers.

Spring & Winter Wheat: Nutrient density and soil Bio-fertility.

Biologicals

Inoculants: Disease suppression and pests.

Products: selected products that promote soil and plant health

Diagnostics

Boutique Soil Health Lab: In development

Bio-markers and methodology for microbial community profiling:

  • Phospholipids fatty acids (PLFA)
  • MALDI-TOF-MS (Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization- Time Of Flight- Mass Spectrometry)
