What Do Plants Crave?

February 27, 2024 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Virtual Via Zoom

Contact: Benjamin Phillips

Ben Phillips, vegetable extension specialist with MSU Extension works with growers on the sandy soils of Southwest Michigan, and used to work with growers on the clay soils of East Michigan. The soils in each place played into how crops were managed. In this talk we will discuss fertility and moisture management for high quality and high quantity vegetables across this spectrum, including high organic matter soils like muck and pot/bag culture using greenhouse media.

CCA Credits are offered for this session. This session is eligible for 1 RUP credit (1B or Priv CORE).
