Regenerative Agriculture Podcast


Jul 16, 2018

Soil analysis should be used as a milestone to monitor progress towards growing healthy crops; they should not be used as a goal. Every nutrient and soil amendment application needs to produce a strong crop response, not just a soil analysis response. When we apply this understanding properly it means that we will not apply uneconomical quantities of soil amendments to balance a soil analysis that do not first provide a benefit to the crop.

 

On the mini-episode this week, I talk about 

  • where soil tests are needed for optimal farm performance
  • how a soil test can be a detriment 
  • what to look for in a soil report
  • what the numbers aren’t telling you
  • why you can decrease your annual fertilizer inputs and get a better crop response
