Potato production can disrupt the soil in a very aggressive way, but there are a number of agronomic measures farmers can follow to bolster soil health.
In this FREE live webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 23, 1 p.m. ET, 10 a.m. PT., we will talk about practices to help increase the soil’s capacity for potato production, including:
- Why organic matter is important for soil structure.
- How biodiversity in the soil can help suppress soil-borne disease and pest pathogens.
- Using cover crops, minimizing tillage and going to longer rotations.
- Integrating livestock into the system.
