World Ag Expo is still eight months away, but attendees looking to learn more about soil health and other agriculture topics now have access to dozens of educational seminars on demand.
Holloway’s Soil Health Seminar on “Bringing Our Soils Back to Life” is one of more than 70 ag seminars now published on WorldAgExpo.com.
Other sessions include presentations on dairy and livestock, international trade, agtech, and are being made available for free at Bit.ly/WAE23VideosOnDemand.
Holloway’s soil health seminar was hosted by Holloway CEO Brian Maxted and Director of Agronomy Steve Lenander, who discussed the importance of leveraging soil, plant, and water samples from independent, third-party labs for input recommendations.
“It all starts with what the soils are telling us,” Maxted said. “When someone comes to us and asks, ‘How much compost, or gypsum, or should I put this NPK on?’ We say, ‘Well, what are your soils saying?’ Science should dictate what your farm needs.”
Along with discussing the importance of soil, tissue and water sampling, the soil experts fielded questions from local growers and discussed the many soil challenges brought about by excessive rainfall this past winter, including:
• Water penetration problems
• Other excess water issues
