Being able to test soil can help you save money, conserve energy, optimize crop production and diagnose issues before they become a costly problem.
This online soil testing course has been uniquely created for:
In general, soil samples can help determine what the nutrient status of the soil is and the plant-available nutrients, which can help you reach optimal fertility and growth.
Though the program centers on Oregon, the information is applicable to other states and regions as well.
After completing this agronomic soil testing course, you will be able to:
This program was developed by a team of experts including:
Amber Moore conducts applied research and develops nutrient and lime recommendations that improve nutrient use efficiency by large acreage crops grown in Oregon. The crops of primary focus are on grass grown for seed, cereals, and potatoes, with a secondary focus on minor crops (other seed crops, peppermint, forages, vegetables, berries, Christmas trees, etc.). Her research program is focused on developing soil fertility research efforts that are statistically sound and address current soil fertility needs in Oregon large acreage field crops. Research interests include fertilizer response, nitrogen mineralization, acidificaiton caused by nitrogen fertilizers, lime response, plant nutrient uptake, and soil nutrient dynamics.
