De energie van de zon vervuilt niet en raak voorlopig ook niet op. Hoe maken we er het beste gebruik van?
Research is always team work and thus, I am looking for more members to join our team!
I set-up the main mesocosm experiment in the containers using sterile soil as background and 4 donor soils with varying levels and traits of fungi.

'My' project called ‘Learning from nature– towards sustainable crop production using soil fungi’ officially starts today and I cannot wait to start the experiments!
I described my ideal soil and launched the search for the best soils in the Netherlands. I’ve got quite some good nominations so far.
This summer I grew potato plants in my experimental containers. Potato plants are famous for producing potatoes and at the end of the summer I was left with kilos of them.
