This collection of links and publications are compiled information about managing nutrient levels in your pasture. This includes soil testing and assessment, application of fertilizers and minerals, and nutrient cycling in a forage pasture.
Phosphorus is an important plant nutrient for growing dairy forages. Unfortunately, many dairies have more phosphorus excreted and stored in manure than they can use during a crop year. Soils have the ability to store moderate over-applications of phosphorus for future crop production, but continued over-application can lead to losses of phosphorus to surface water.
Proper watering and yearly renovation can help stem strawberry gray mold, also known as Botrytis fruit rot.
It’s strawberry season and even we have caught strawberry fever! The Mid-Valley Small Farms team is excited to announce that they are conducting new research on strawberry production. This Research and Extension program, supported by the Oregon Strawberry Commission, will focus on best practices for organic and conventional, day-neutral strawberries for fresh market.
