Understanding Soil Health on Horticulture Operations

Understanding Soil Health on Horticulture Operations

Event date:

ROOTS MAKE SOIL: 

A one-day course on the principles of soil health, using problem-based learning.

Learn what the soil health principles are, where they are gleaned from and how their application improves- and creates soil crumb structure.

Living Roots - Covered Soil - Minimal Disturbance - Diversity

The soil health principles work. From large farms to market gardens, when implemented doggedly they bring real results: better soil structure, healthier crops and more consistent yields. What's more, the growers that have most rigorously applied these principles have the more profitable operations today.
