Check out the Land-grant Impacts Database or public website and (https://landgrantimpacts.org/) you will see big changes. The site has a fresh new look, better tools and search capabilities, integrated peer review, and more prominently displayed impact stories. All new statements submitted to the database will now undergo peer review before being made public on the site. This new layer of review will insure the highest quality information is being displayed. Statements from the past three years will be archived and available, but not displayed on the public site. This session will discuss the site, how it is used, and how to use the site.

MidAtlantic Women in Agriculture Webinar: Soils and Salts: From Fertilizer to Tidewater

12:00 pm EDT

3/27/19: Soils and Salts: From Fertilizer to Tidewater

Salts are a natural component of soils. In fact most nutrients and fertilizers exist in salt forms such as potassium chloride (KCl). Salts can have a negative effect on plant growth, reducing their ability to pull water from the soil. Although the East usually has enough rainfall to keep salt levels low, fertilizer placement, irrigation water, and flooding in the low lying areas of the Mid-Atlantic can all have detrimental effects. We will discuss how to read salt sources, understand fertilizer placement, and implement remediation for gardens and row crops.
