Tue
Organic Soil Fertility for Vegetables and Strawberries Short Course @ University of California Agricultural Center
Feb 12 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

This short course will focus on the practical aspects of organic soil fertility management for fast-maturing leafy green vegetables and long-season strawberry production.

Topics will focus on the contribution of various sources of nitrogen for crop production, including mineralization from soil organic matter, release of inorganic nitrogen from organic fertilizers and composts, and the contribution of prior crop residues, cover crops, and irrigation water.

Growers, consultants, and those involved in organic soil fertility management will find this course valuable.
