Workshop Session: Friday I 

Nutrient-rich soil yields nutrient-rich food. Gain an understanding of the biological, chemical, and physical aspects of the soil ecosystem so you can capitalize on the soils’ natural ability to provide plant-available nutrients. Explore the fundamental aspects of soil science, soil testing, and nutrient cycling, as well as cropping strategies and inputs to optimize soil fertility and crop productivity on your farm.
