Cintia Mayr from the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) presented Microbes-4-Climate (M4C) at the prestigious miCROPe 2024 conference. This event, dedicated to exploring the role of microbes in crop production, took place from July 15th to 18th, 2024, in the historic Apothekertrakt of Schönbrunn Castle, Vienna.

Cintia introduced the project at the “Microbe-assisted Crop Production – Opportunities, Challenges, and Needs,” session  and discussed with leading experts the critical role of soil and plant microbiomes in agro-systems, including nutrient delivery, plant fitness, stress tolerance, and pathogen or pest control.
