Objectives: Strengthen linkages between researcher groups and sugarcane farmers. Increased knowledge and a clearer understanding of the potential benefits of the various microbe additives. Gain a better understanding on the potential to increase soil carbon in our sugarcane soils. Better discernment between truly beneficial soil microbial additives and "snake oil" commercial products. Increased skills in preparation and application of microbial solutions/compounds and in getting them to flourish in the soil. Improved farming practices to foster improvement in soil health. A plan for future involvement and investment in the soil health/soil microbes/soil carbon activities.
