The workshop will cover practical soil management strategies to improve biological soil fertility and enhance plant health. Learn how to manage for long-term fertility using local rock dusts, farm-made compost, cover cropping, and fallowing. Carter will also discuss their in-season fertility plan which uses biological inoculants, pre-plant fertilizers, nutrient drenches, and foliar sprays.
