Holistic Crop Nutrition Course

Over the last few generations millions of acres of the world’s agricultural soils have been degraded by overuse and toxic chemicals. This degradation has had a huge impact on the soil’s nutrient content, impacting human food production and our food’s nutrient content. While we currently have plenty of food, it is lacking in vital nutrients. The Holistic Crop Nutrition course will focus on replenishing and rebalancing soil nutrients.

Topics Covered

  • Connecting soil health and human health
  • The complexity of nutrient uptake by plants
  • Soil microbiology
  • Soil nutrient patterns and desired nutrient content
  • Soil test interpretation
  • Fertilizers and fertilizer calculations
  • Energetic solutions & much more
