Fertility Management Through Soil Testing – Episode 7

Please Subscribe Quick Navigation Fertility Management Through Soil TestingMeet Your HostResourcesSourcesBooksMeet Your ModeratorQuestions and Answers SessionSupport Progressive FarmingRelated Episodes and Comments Fertility Management Through Soil TestingWhen it comes to soil, trust but verify. Soil may look the part, but you cannot see proper mineral balance in your soil. Most growers do not test their soil, and many that do are chasing incomplete data looking simply at NPK and pH. This week we will demystify soil testing by comparing pH-driven soil testing to a base saturation approach, explain the cation exchange capacity (CEC), put pH in its place, discuss the magic of trace elements, and much more.
