At the heart of the organic movement is a continued effort to sustain and regenerate our natural resources.  In this webinar we'll discuss the role of soil testing for making informed fertility decisions on organic farms and gardens.  We'll review the role of soil mineralization and organic matter, including "ENR" (Estimated Nitrogen Release), as you develop a Nitrogen Budget for your fields this year.
