Regular soil testing is an important element in nutrient management. You can use soil tests as a diagnostic tool or to identify trends through time. This publication provides general guidelines for interpreting soil test results.
Soil electrical conductivity (EC) is a measure of the amount of salts in soil (salinity of soil). It is an important indicator of soil health. For certain non-saline soils, determining EC can be a convenient and economical way to estimate the amount of nitrogen (N) available for plant growth.
To gain the most information from soil testing, it is necessary to become familiar with the soil test report. This guide will explain where each soil test parameter is displayed on the report. You will also find basic information about each soil test method and its role in soil fertility and plant nutrition
Manage Weeds on Your Farm is a definitive guide to understanding agricultural weeds and how to manage them efficiently, effectively and ecologically—for organic and conventional farmers alike. The ecological approach to weed management seeks to first understand the biology and behavior of problem weeds and then to develop an integrated set of control strategies that exploit their weaknesses.
Here (Paungfoo-Lonhienne et al) present evidence indicative of a more active role of plants in nutrient cycling than currently considered. (Their) discovery has implications for soil ecology and applications including future sustainable agriculture with efficient nutrient cycles.
Zach Weiss blends a unique combination of systems thinking, empathy, and awareness to specialize in watershed restoration and ecosystem regeneration. Harvesting time and the productivity of natural systems is the guiding principle. The result? Abundant oases that produce for many lifetimes.
