Friday Session I

You know the nutrients crop plants need to grow. But, knowing how to make sure those nutrients are available at the right time and in the right amounts is a source of confusion and conflict. Learn why there is so much variability in soil tests and the recommendations they provide. Explore the broad theories of soil fertility management, including where they agree and where they contradict each other.

Paul Burkhouse and his wife own Foxtail Farm near Osceola, Wis. They train new farmers through their internship program and apprenticeship/incubator program. The Burkhouses market their produce exclusively through a winter CSA.
