The UC Soil Fertility Short Course will be repeated on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at the Buehler Alumni & Visitor Center, UC Davis. If you missed the February 2012 course, be sure to sign up for this one. Register early before the course sells out — enrollment is limited.
The UC Soil Fertility Short Course will focus on the practical aspects of soil fertility management in an era of escalating fertilizer costs and increasing government regulation of nutrient inputs for environmental water quality protection. Topics covered include getting the maximum value from soil testing, interpretation of laboratory soil test results, comparing fertilizer sources, developing crop nutrient management plans, and fertilizer management and environmental protection. Although the focus will be on nutrient management in annual cropping systems, much of the material presented will be relevant to perennial crops as well.
The program is intended for growers, certified crop advisers (CCA), pest control advisers, government agency personnel, and others involved in fertility management planning. The registration fee is $125/150 which includes lunch, refreshments and study materials. This course is approved for California CCA continuing education credits. The course is taught by Tim Hartz (Cooperative Extension Vegetable Crops Specialist) and Stu Pettygrove (Cooperative Extension Soils Specialist) and sponsored by the UC Vegetable Research & Information Center (VRIC).
