***CANCELLED*** LEAF 2020: Interpreting Soil Sample Reports

March 19, 2020


In this workshop, led by Josh Putman, Field Crops Specialist with Cornell Cooperative Extension's Southwest NY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Regional Team, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about soil sampling. Topics to be covered include why it's important to sample soils, how to take a soil sample, the difference between a pH test and a full analysis soil sample, and how to read a soil sample report. We'll also have a hands-on portion for this workshop that will include a demonstration on using the Cornell pH Test Kit, practice examples on how to determine fertilizer and lime application rates based on your sample report, and how to determine your soil type.

Participants for this workshop have the option of paying either $5 (covering just the course materials) or $20 (which will include a voucher for a free soil sample at a $20 value).
