What are the key differences between organic and conventional soil fertility management? What nutrient management approaches commonly used by organic producers? This session will present basic concepts to help you work with organic producers and improve soil nutrient status. We will place special emphasis on nitrogen management and tools organic growers use to manage this critical nutrient cycle. We will also provide resources that you can use to learn about organic nutrient management. Join organic farmer Carmen Fernholz and soil scientist Julie Grossman for this valuable webinar to enhance your toolbox for organic nutrient management!
Julie Grossman is a soil scientist in the University of Minnesota Department of Horticultural Science who specializes in the soil fertility of organic cropping systems. Her work emphasizes improved management of plant-soil-microbe relationships in organic systems, especially the use of legumes to help provide nitrogen to crops. Dr. Grossman comes most recently from a faculty position in the Department of Soil Science at NC State University, where she spent 7 years working in soil fertility management of organic farming systems. She holds an M.S. in Soil Science and Ph.D. in Agronomy and Plant Genetics from the University of Minnesota, and was an NSF Post-doctoral Fellow at Cornell University.
