Dr. Mohamend Hijri is a professor of biology and a researcher at the plant biology research institute (l'Institut de recherche en biologie végétale) at the Université de Montréal. In his talk, he presents the dangers of the next agricultural crisis which are still unknown to the public, and also discusses the negative effects of the non-responsible use of phosphorus. His solution? A project which would employ microscopic mushrooms (mycorrhizal) in a more efficient use of phosphorus for agriculture—and thus providing a remedy to a crisis which might well affect more than what's on your plate.
