Advanced Soil Science for Commercial Growers
Saturday, April 24th 4-6pm (questions and consultation until 7pm)
Instructor: Elizabeth Murphy
If you’re in the business of farming, you’ll have a soil test report. But what does it actually mean? How does it inform organic or sustainable management? And what are it’s limitations? The living soil system is the foundation of farming, but a soil test report is only one piece of evaluating and managing its health. Growers, bring your test reports, your problems, and your questions to this two hour advanced soil science class. Soil scientist, Elizabeth Murphy, will present strategies and practical approaches to integrate knowledge about the chemical, physical, and ecological properties of the soil to refine nutrient management, improve soil health, and maximize production. Participation will be limitied to 15 commercial growers. Pre-class questions and soil test report submittal are encouraged.
