Winter Soil Workshop Series: Nutrient Management in Deep Compost Mulch Systems in Falmouth and Virtual

February 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

  Winter Soil Workshop Series
Join University of Maine Cooperative Extension educators and community partners for a series of workshops on soil health for local agriculture producers.

Nutrient Management in Deep Compost Mulch Systems
More and more farmers are adopting the deep compost mulch no-till system. This system has many benefits including eliminating tillage, reducing weed populations, and increasing resilience to water extremes. However there is little known about optimizing nutrient management in this system. Join this discussion with Bruce Hoskins (UMaine Soil Testing Service Assistant Scientist), Nick Rowley (UMaine Sustainable Ag Professional), Caleb Goosen (MOFGA Crop Specialist), Jason Lilley (Sustainable Ag Educator), and experienced farmers. We’ll discuss nutrient issues observed on farms, research based experiences, and best practices for testing soils, fertilizing, and addressing nutrient deficiencies in this system.

Please note: while a Zoom option is available, all speakers will be in-person.
