Interpreting soil tests and understanding nutrient deficiencies is an important management technique so that ecological farmers can increase yields, improve crop quality, reduce weed problems, and improve soil health. This webinar will briefly explain the importance of different soil nutrients found on a soil test, how to read the soil test, and how to interpret that test to choose what soil amendments to apply. You will leave with a better understanding of how to use a soil test to manage, amend, and correct deficiencies in your soil. This workshop will be useful for market gardeners who have an intermediate understanding of soil health.
