Sunday January 29th:
9:00am - 3:00pm (lunch on your own)
Robert VanVeldhuizen

The presentation will explain the complexity of soils, especially those in Alaska. This information is what you need to effectively make decisions on effectively fertilizing your peonies effectively. It will also take a laboratory analysis report from a typical Alaskan soil sample.  It will cover the importance of soil sampling (when and how) and laboratory.  The session will go over each of the various laboratory tests for physical, chemical, and biological soil properties - how each test is done, what is actually being measured, total vs. available nutrients, and the strengths and weaknesses of each test.  Finally, there will be a discussion of what each of the numbers actually means - how the values compare to previous soil tests done on the same farm, how they might compare to other farms in the same region of Alaska, and how they might compare to other regions of Alaska or the rest of North America.  With this information, there will be examples of nutrients, both mineral and organic, that can be used to in to provided the needed nutrition for your crop whether you use organic or traditional sources of fertilizer.
