Culture plates and dilution blanks were prepared by Microbiology Instructor Bashir Tijjani (center). Short course participants diluted soil samples for plate counts of soil microorganisms. Colony-forming-units of fungi, actinobacteria, and nonfilamentous bacteria were enumerated after incubating plates for 2 and 9 days to evaluate percentages of fast- and slow-growing organisms as an indicator of soil quality.
