Implementation of Soil Health Management Systems results in many changes to soil organic matter and the soil microbial population. These changes require that we think a bit more about how we manage nutrients within the soil. Among the things to consider is the use of cover crops for trapping and slow releasing soil nutrients. This discussion will include an overview of soil health management practices, changes to expect in the soil organic matter, some of the major microbial groups involved in carbon and nitrogen dynamics, the role of soil enzymes, and how the choice of cover crops can help manage soil nitrogen.
CCAs and CPAgs will receive 0.5 Nutrient Management CEU and 0.5 Soil and Water Management CEU. CPSS, CPSC and CSTs will receive 1.0 Professional Meetings CEU.
FREE to all registrants. Register now!
