Want to learn more about successful soil fertility management?

Higher yields, lower costs, fewer pest and disease problems, and irrigation savings are reported effects of 'feeding the soil and not the plant'.

In response to demand from growers and consultants who want to learn more about the benefits of our program, we offer short courses periodically during the year. These courses are built upon the Albrecht principles of soil-based fertility management, and are at 'introductory', 'intermediate', and 'advanced' level.

In addition to the public seminars, we can also conduct on-farm consultations or private training sessions tailored to meet the specific needs of your organization.
