Plant Nutrition and Fertilizer Management in Nursery Operations @ UC Cooperative Extension Auditorium
Feb 20 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

Fertilizers: Types, Use, and Methods of Monitoring Fertilizer Status in a Nursery Operation

This workshop will focus on fertilizers and their use in nursery operations. The first half of this program will describe fertilizer types such as granular fertilizers, Controlled Release Fertilizers (CRFs) and liquid fertilizers. We will describe the pros and cons of each fertilizer type and how to optimize fertilizer performance. The second half of the program will be dedicated to monitoring and measuring the quality of irrigation water and media. We will identify and demonstrate methods of conducting on-site tests for measuring media quality and water quality. We will then review protocols for proper sampling for off-site sample analyses.
