LAURENS and WARE SHOALS, S.C. — Healthy soils make healthy plants, but 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, participants will learn to identify these deficiencies and address them through cover crops and other applications. 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.
Wednesday, September 13, 9:30am-2:00pm
