1:00-4:30 (Break at 3:15) John Kempf, Biology Centric Nutrient Management, (Good bye Chemistry)

John will give you a very different perspective on plant nutrition, one you won’t hear about from ag retailers.  

· How most nutrient deficiencies are created by over-application

· How the form of nutrients applied determines availability, (and most commercial products reduce availability rather than increase it)

· How soil analyses that are known to be inaccurate are used as sales tools to sell unneeded products.

· How soil amendments and fertilizers often are applied at the least optimal time
