ROSE Mick

Dr Mick Rose is interested in the interactions between plants, microorganisms and their environment and how agronomic management practices influence these interactions. Mick undertook his PhD at the University of Sydney through an Australian Cotton CRC scholarship, exploring the role of wetland plants and microorganisms in improving water quality on cotton farms.

Mick has since conducted research on plant growth-promoting biofertilisers in Vietnam; abiotic stress tolerance in rice in Japan and organic amendments for soil health and plant productivity in Victoria, Australia. For the last eight years, Mick has been working as a Research Scientist with NSW Department of Primary Industries, Wollongbar, on a variety of projects researching the potential impacts of pesticides on soil biological processes, crop health and the wider environment.
