UC/OSU Soil Fertility Shortcourse March 15, Klamath Falls
UC/OSU Soil Fertility Shortcourse; March 15, 2013 Building 6, Room H138; 7390 6th Street, Klamath Falls Ore.
This Shortcourse will focus on the practical aspects of soil fertility management in an era of escalating fertilizer costs and increasing government regulation of nutrient inputs. The topics covered will include:
- Getting the maximum value from soil testing
- Interpretation of laboratory soil test results
- Comparing fertilizer sources
- Developing crop fertilization plans
The intent of the course is to provide practical “How To” information on making fertilizer recommendations. The course will not directly address organic fertility management issues, but organic growers will still benefit from attending because the majority of the day will be spent covering basic soil fertility concepts. The content will be geared toward commercial scale production, and will assume a general knowledge of soils.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND Growers, CCAs, PCAs, government agency personnel, and others involved in fertility management planning should not miss this event.
