LAURENS, S.C — Healthy soils make healthy plants although achieving optimal soil health can be difficult. Many soils show deficiencies in nutrients and organic matter that need to be addressed before a successful crop or forages can be grown. At this workshop we will discuss how to find these deficiencies and what you can do through cover crops and applications to meet the needs of your crops.
After lunch we will travel to Bioway Farm in Ware Shoals, SC. Here we will tour the facility, demonstrate soil testing procedures and talk with the farmer about his experiences with SC farming.
