UC Soil Fertility Short Course

November 28, 2012
Buehler Alumni & Visitors Center, UC Davis

 

This event is FULL. If you would like to be placed on a WAIT LIST for this event, and to receive notification of a cancellation or the next Soil Fertility Short Course (Spring 2013), please CLICK HERE.

This 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. The topics covered will include:

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 course will not directly address organic fertility management issues, but organic growers may still benefit from attending; the majority of day will be spent covering basic soil fertility concepts, which are equally applicable to organic and conventional production. The content will be geared toward commercial scale production, and will assume a general knowledge of soil science; this course is not appropriate for home gardeners.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Growers, CCAs, PCAs, government agency personnel, and others involved in fertility management planning control should not miss this event. This course is not appropriate for home gardeners.

UC Cooperative Extension Specialists Tim Hartz (vegetable crops) and Stu Pettygrove (soils)
