Traditional soil production for soft fruit crops is a buffered system that is slow to change. Fertigation mistakes in a traditional soil system isn’t necessarily detrimental, or result is major pH or nutrient changes.Read More
In this blog and video presentation we will take a deeper dive into why we recommend grafted plants and fumigation as potential solutions to obstacles in watermelon production. I would like to focus on grafted plants as a tool and potential solution to grower obstacles.
Traditional soil production for soft fruit crops is a buffered system that is slow to change. Fertigation mistakes in a traditional soil system isn’t necessarily detrimental, or result is major pH or nutrient changes.
The DPR released the 2021 California Pesticide Residue Monitoring Program Report showing that 97% of produce collected in 2021 had no detectable pesticide residues. More than 98% of “grown in California” produce had no residues that exceeded allowable levels.
Healthy soil is the foundation for successful agricultural production. One factor that can inhibit soil health is plant parasitic nematodes. Ee will discuss the importance of soil health, how nutrient cycling affects soil health, and the importance of soil fumigation in controlling nematodes.
Change occurs slowly in a traditional soil production system. This allows berry growers to make fertigation mistakes that are not completely detrimental. Soil deficiencies are more difficult to correct. When fertigating in a substrate system, growers can change pH almost daily.
NC State University started an on-farm research project with Lewis Nursery and Farms to investigate the feasibility of long-cane raspberry production in the state. Commercial production of this high value crop has been limited to the western part of the state where the temperatures are cooler.
This is my livelihood, I don't know where I'd be if I didn't have this to tell you the truth. Being able to make a living at this, it's rewarding. We're growing over 500 acres of potatoes, so we have to perform and get a good yield to be able to make money, and every year that seems to get more and more challenging.
