Most strip-tillers understand the importance of soil testing, as they typically serve as the baseline for fertilizer purchases and application. But if someone were to hand you a soil test report, would you be able to read the information and understand what it means?
Knowing what to look for, how to interpret the data and then apply it to make informed nutrient management decisions is essential at a time when soil and fertilizer runoff are growing public concerns. For more than 30 years, Dr. Ray Ward has been on the forefront of soil analysis and tissue testing to help farmers improve and understand the value of plant and soil health.
During this Premier Lecture Series general session, Ward discusses how to listen and learn from your strip-tilled soils to include striking the right balance between fertilizer application and plant need, as well as proper analysis of soil and tissue testing results.
