   Wish 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 based on the Albrecht principles of
        soil-based fertility management, and are at 'introductory' and 'advanced' level.
		
             In addition to the public seminars, we can also conduct private training
        sessions tailored to meet the specific needs of your organization.

       3-Day Intro Kinsey/Albrecht Soil Fertility Workshop for Crops & Pasture

          An intensive 3-day workshop to help in applying the principles and methods developed by 
          Prof. William Albrecht as tested and proven worldwide.

          The Albrecht system helps to build, balance, and maintain excellent soil fertility - to improve

          Both conventional and organic inputs can be included as needed, and examples discussed will
          include local soil samples as questions and time permits.

          information concerning how to improve and manage your farm's soil fertility - from the basics
          of using and interpreting a soil test to learning how to identify the effects of depleted or excessive
