Video: Soil Health & Nitrogen Management with Dr. David Burton

Dr. David Burton who is a Distinguished Research Professor from Dalhousie University. Dr. Burton’s research examines the role of the soil environment in influencing the nature and extent of microbial metabolism in soil. His current research programs involve an examination of the production and consumption of greenhouse gases in natural and agricultural landscapes, sustainable manure management practices, bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soil, and the assessment of the quality of the soil biological environment and its influence on overall soil quality. It is the aim of this work to better understand the factors that control microbial metabolism and to use this information to develop sustainable land management systems.
